    Jumping rope is too exhausting

    I donít remember when the last time I did the jumping rope for exercise. Maybe 10 years ago? Now that I am thinking of using the jumping rope again to cut down on my weight, I was warned against it because of the pressure that it can give my bones particularly the knees and ankles. Now that gives me worries that a senior cannot indulge in strenuous physical activities anymore.

    Re: Jumping rope is too exhausting

    You are very correct my friend with saying that jumping ropes is very exhausting. I can remember my experience with the exercise and it wasn't an easy one. Some people think that it's an easy drill but when you get into it, you will come to realize that it's a High intensity exercise. I think it's too much for older folks to get into but even if they must take part in it, it should done with a minimal rate.

    I guess rather than using jumping ropes you can do jumping jacks instead but when you do it try to remove the "jump" aspect of it. It is excellent for moving the heart rate up, and toning the whole body. It is a complete exercise according to some.

    Exactly! I can still remember vividly how discomforting it was when I had my first joint injury in my knee and foot - toe injury. I literally couldn't wear my shoes for more than 3 weeks. It wasn't a funny experience for me that prefer wearing shoes too often.

    It is a low cost way to build up your cardio fitness and they do say it's very good for athletes that do combat sports, boxing, and mixed martial arts as well. I would say for older people though, the ground impact of the exercise can put to much strain on the legs particularly the calves and ankles.

    Exactly! Skipping is a high intensity workout, if you are very observant you will notice that boxers don't joke with rope skipping because it helps to improve their overall fitness, agility and quickness. It works on the arms, calf, and thigh mostly.
