Skip to it!

Can’t beat skipping to start the day!

Skipping facts:

Unlike running or jogging, where the arms move sympathetically to the the rest of your body and have no need to be clenched, extended or retracted, skipping is approximately 40% upper body and 60% lower body.

Depending on your weight and exertion level you’ll burn between 70-110 extra calories in a ten minute session.
1 hour of skipping, at speed would result in a loss of between 600 and 900 calories. WOW!

A high level of coordination is needed to be able to skip to a reasonable level. To skip for a continuous period without stopping requires cross-lateral ambi-dexterity and a very high level of fitness. Both sides of the brain, both sides of the body.

Jumping increases levels of calcium, thus helping to prevent osteoporosis. The Osteoporosis Society recommends 2 to 5 minutes of skipping every day to help prevent osteoporosis.
