Bouncing rope for 30 minutes can burn roughly 300 calories, reveal experts, so what are you waiting for?
4. It helps improve the skin
How is that possible, you ask? Because skipping is the most convenient way to ensure that you do workout — even at home. It will increase blood circulation in the body, providing nutrients to the skin, and flushing out toxins.
