Jump for Your Health!

Fri, 7 Jul 2006 by Denise Austin

Looking for a change of pace? Why not add these hopping good exercise moves to your routine this week? They're not only aerobic, they also pack plenty of calorie-burning punch! Remember to start slowly, working up to a 15-minute set.

  • Jumping rope: Minute per minute, this grade-school standby burns more energy than any aerobic activity other than running! You'll burn 200 calories in just 15 minutes. Start by slowly swinging the rope to your side to get into the rhythm, and then jump in with both feet hitting the ground at the same time. There you go!
  • Mini-Trampoline: This compact piece of home gym equipment packs a powerful punch. You'll burn 75 calories in just 15 minutes of bouncing. You can also use the trampoline to jog in place during those rainy days!
  • Jumping Jacks: This gym-class classic burns 150 calories in 15 minutes flat! Start in a 45-degree stance, jump to the center with feet together, and then jump back out to 45 degrees. Snappy!
