weight by jumping rope
cost a thing and works for almost everyone
It is not always possible to go to gyms (they
don't exist in many places) and losing weight is
already a big business with too many companies
trying to sell weight loss pills that do not seem
to work. So how about weight loss by jumping
a rope? You can easily order one for less
than $10 and then you are all set for life.
||If you watch television, you might be led to believe that the only way to
lose weight is by
Boot Camp or spend a couple of weeks at the
Extreme Makeover mansion or have
liposuction plastic surgery
procedure. Plus there are always promoters of diets, exercise equipment, weight loss pills, and everything else that is out there helping people to lose weight. And then there is
The Swan that makes you believe that giving you a new body through plastic surgery is the only way to get the body that you want.
But have you ever wondered that not too long ago in America (and still in most countries of the world) there were no gyms, exercise equipment (the kind we see today), or sophisticated diets that we have today? People stayed healthy by doing things with their hands. They walked, climbed stairs, and cooked their own meals (rather than microwave some junk from the supermarket). Since it was unusual for women to workout with men in a public place or to put sneakers and run on the streets, they did
simple exercises at
home. For instance, jumping rope.
Why is rope jumping a good technique for weight loss?
- It costs literally nothing, less
than $10, even if you buy the most sophisticated types. You can even make one yourself at home. Almost anyone can manage to get one.
- You can work out in the privacy of your home.
- When you are with other people, jumping rope can be converted into a
exercise. Many people actually use background music so that jumping can be coordinated with the rhythm of the music.
- You can travel with your jump rope and exercise while you are in a hotel room or staying with friends/family.
- Apart from helping you burn calories (about 200 calories per 15 minutes at moderate speed), jumping is also good for the heart and can give you a
full-body workout without hurting your knees and ankles too much.
Like any other exercise, it will take time for you to be able to jump rope for a reasonable amount of time. So start small and then go from there. Stop when you feel tired and start again. Within a matter of weeks, you should be able to jump 30 minutes, the minimum time recommended for daily exercise by the US Department of Health and Human Services.
