Here's my two cents. Skipping rope, like running, can be used to condition yourself for endurance. Here's 2 sample drills that both can be used to build endurance:

Rope Skipping: alternate working the rope fast performing a "high stepping" motion and working the rope at a slightly slower speed, 30 seconds each for 2 - 3 minutes.

Running: alternate jogging and sprinting during a session. A variation to the rope exercise, yet just as effective.


Though it shares endurance development benefits with running, skipping rope stands apart from running as it can be used to develop your balance, coordination, agility and footwork as well as endurance.

So it just depends on what you want to do as both are invaluable to developing atheletes.

Right now ive been skipping rope lately, but thats because its too damn cold and snowy outside to run. Otherwise i would be doing both regularily.

I think the "no pain no gain" motto went out the window about five years ago.

also if you have bad knees, or want to keep from getting bad knees, jump roping is one of the few high-impact activities that helps bone strength maintenance and may actually increase it.

My knees starting giving me problems years ago after my stint as an Air Force plumber and rope skipping and hindu squats have starting building my quads around my knees as well as my calf muscles and the problems have started to go away!

By the way....I mean to clarify my initial post. The 2-3 minute sessions simulate rounds of a fight and a typical goal is to build endurance toward fighting 12 rounds for boxing or 5 for mma. Again.....depends on the individual and his training needs.

just do both. the more cardio you get the better and both will have a different effect on your legs, albeit a small one.
