    Jumping rope - good form of cardio?

    Hi everyone! My first thread here...

    I was wondering if jumping rope will burn off some fat - i used to own a stationary bike, so when i needed to burn off some fat, i would ride that, and it worked great! I got rid of it because i ran out of space. I stated to gain weight so i tried jogging for a while, but it is just too cold out. I figured i could just get a jump rope and go for it - i just wanted to know if it will really work good. I used to ride my bike 30 mins in the morning and 30 at night, and it worked like a charm - will jumping rope have the same effect?

    Thanks for your responses!

    yes.. the point of cardio exercise is to get your heart rate up and pumping.... it doesn't know what activity you're doing only that it is working harder.
