According to the British Rope Skipping Association, 10 minutes of skipping can have the same health benefits as a 45-minute run!
Skipping is a full body workout which uses your abdominals to stabilise the body, legs for jumping, shoulders and arms for turning the rope, which is why this month, we have a skipping challenge for you!
