  • I lost a good amount of weight from jump roping. I didn’t have a scale so I didn’t realize how much I lost until I went to back school and people kept asking me. I was just like what the hell are you talking about. So I weighed myself and it turns out I lost 20lbs. It only took about a month and a half. 1 hour a day every night.

  • Can i ask you which goes first to unlock? Is it footwork skills or the handwork skills? Like should i learn boxer skips/highknees etc. first or should i learn sideswipes/crisscross?

  • I’ve been jumping rope for 2 years ( almost every day ). I got you guys in recommended and saw u skipping rope and i was like damn that looks cool and satisfying i wanna do that to. So i ordered a rope immediatelly 20$ on amazon. Im very lean today and i can jump for 15 minutes without problem. Thank you guys, peace be with you!

  • I was doing jump rope pretty good and had lost a lot a weight too…but after sm while I severely injured my knee…and now I’m not able to do even waking….so I suggest everyone to do jump rope on a soft surface…

  • I love the ELLIPTICAL. It’s my go to cardio when I’m in the gym. Becuase I go based the music the resistance change. If the music is faster music, the resistance is low…. if it’s the music is slow, the resistance is high. Jump rope is my number one favorite form of cardio. I think cardio Burn will be based on your intensity on either machine. But jump rope is so fun that you’re going to put more effort therefore Burn more calories. Great vid and comparison

  • I have been followig you since you lived in Colombia (Medellin), that’s when I started Jump Roping, however on this video, I mix both exercises, eliptical for warming up before jumping rope, jumping rope as the main exercise for Calorie burn, I believe to myself jumping rope is much more effective

  • Can someone buy me a jump rope? I’m kinda broke ����
    Atm i have a cheap $3.99 jump rope and since i started jumping I’ve hit a new low,, I started about 1 month ago

  • I am not surprised that jump rope would burn more calories Plus I think it would transfer over to athletic ability much better than the elliptical trainer. Personally I don’t care for cardio machines accept the treadmill. Great video is always!

  • Surely to fully compare you’d need to get to same heart rate range and maintain it on both exercises?
    Jump rope had higher peak and avg heart rate so all this showed is that you were working harder on jump rope.

  • I love jumping my rope!!! It gives me so much energy and it has been helping with my anxiety also I am getting lean!! Where I can share my pics before /after? DO THE THING!!!

  • I just started Jumping 2 weeks ago, and I’m loving it. Started with 30 mins and I’m now doing 60 minutes of your workouts. I love it. My legs feel stronger than doing weights.

  • Yoo jump rope dudes I ordered the get strong set. I’ve been using 5 dollar speed ropes and fully committed to cross rope. Cant wait to use them. So excited!!!

  • JR Dudes I have so much love for you guys but comparing jump rope calorie burn to other forms of exercise is just no comparison. The jump rope can promote a greater fat loss outcome even if it burns less calories because of how your body reacts being moved through space and the fat loss hormones it creates. That’s why sprinters and gymnast look muscular and lean regardless of their calorie burn. I think nothing compares to a 5 minute a day in a fasted state jump rope session for weight loss regardless of the calorie burn.

  • The Whoop looks like it might be the best fitness tracker out there and I was excited about it until I found out about the mandatory membership fees. Oh well, I guess I’ll just keep myself fitness tracker less.

  • Great, informative video as usual guys. I’ve got the ‘get lean’ Crossrope set and want to know if the Whoop is available in the UK any help?

  • I use a heavy Boxing Rope, I burn about 200 calories in 10min of Fast Jumping. Plus Jumping rope transfers into Athletic Ability apose to the Elliptical Machine. I would do the jump rope unless there is a medical reason you need the machine. Appreciate you guys, see ya on the next one.

  • Well even if some other exercise burn more calorie skipping is still the most easiest, you don’t need much equipment or space. And finally it’s gets more enjoyable as we learn more tricks.

    So in the end it does not matter because jump rope is still the best.

    But still martial arts is great too if you want both the muscle and flexibility.

  • I got to get my double unders down but I jump rope about 10 min a day after my main workout of strength training or another form of cardio

  • I have an elliptical machine and I Jump rope 4 times a week and I do the Elliptical 2 times a week. Great exercise machine. Jump rope is more fun.

  • Not first?
