If you want to lose weight burning 1000 calories a day can be the fastest way towards achieving that goal, but how can you possibly burn so much calories in one day alone? You’ll have to spend every single day in the gym working until you sweat every bite you’ve taken. Or can it be simpler than that? We present the one exercise which burns 1000 calories in an hour and you only need one cheap piece of equipment. Do you know what we’re talking about?
Jumping rope costs under 20$, can fit in your handbag, the whole family can use it and it’s a fun and exciting exercise which improves cardiovascular fitness while toning muscle at the same time. Jumping rope is great at calorie burning. For comparison, you’d have to run an eight-minute mile to work off more calories than you’d burn jumping rope. How amazing is that.
Jumping rope burns about 11 calories per minute. If you do it by varying your speed and increasing the intensity while jumping you can burn up to 20 calories per minute. Fitness experts estimate that if a 150-lb. person jumps rope at a moderate speed (140 revolutions per minute) he can burn 1,022 calories in 90 minutes. If the same person jumps rope at a faster pace (180 to 200 revolutions per minute) he burns around 1,020 calories in 60 minutes.
Be careful and consult your doctor before you start this routine to make sure if you can endure the high intensity and impact. It’s also important to choose the right shoes and jumping surface to prevent injuries. As with every other exercise, warming up, stretching and cooling down are essential. The way you jump determines the impact it has on your body.
Here are 12 jumping rope variations which burn 1000 calories in 60 minutes. Who said exercising and losing weight can’t be fun.
