Skipping rope

I decided to do some thing diff with my cardio and i did some skipping, did it for about 25 min, i sweated SOoo much, much more then if i was to run for an hour or so. Is this good cardio? Burns fat? never really seen much on this in articles or w.e, anyone know?

from what they told me in the boxing gym and what Ive read 25 mins of skipping is the equivalent of an hour of running...so its great for cardio....

Im gonna buy me a good rope and start skipping....

I could never skip rope. But the first day that I went to the gym, they had me skipping rope. I am still not the most graceful skipper, but I sweat to death.

man thats exactly what i was thinking because i dont start to sweat untill i run about 800m, and i figured the amount of sweat that poured off me was the equivalent to me running for about an hour.

as to oddtodd76's comment, i sweated SOoo much skipping, in just a few min i was drenched.

Skipping is so much better then running i guess, just for the pain facotr of running i duno, it jsut feels straineous for me, but runners high is always good.

Just 1 thing ppl, STRETCH, do like a step forward against a chair or some thing and stretch all your muscels espcially your lower leg ones ( dont know what their called lol )
