Skipping is convenient and does not require a lot of space or any special equipment. You can carry the rope with you anywhere. It strengthens the muscles of the legs, abdomen, back and arms with its circular rhythmic movement. It is considered one of the most time-efficient workouts to increase cardiovascular fitness.
Rope jumping requires skill. With practice this skill improves, and then you don't need to jump as high to get over the rope. In time, the arm and overall body movements become more efficient.
