I think I offended her...

I was talking to my friend this morning and she was telling me about her diet she is doing and a new exercise routine.

The diet works, she has done it before with success.

But her exercise routine is jumping rope for 5 minutes 8 times a day.

I said whaaat???? Why are you doing that? She said even though she isn't doing the jump rope all at the same time that it adds up to 40 minutes of jumping rope and that it's a really great exercise.

I don't know, is it??? I know my response bothered her but I honestly never heard of doing that.

What do Ya'll ladies think?

Any exercise is better than nothing. Just will take her longer to see results, if any.

At least she's doing some kind of exercise.

It's a theory that has some merit...

If you get your heart rate up that many times a day there could be weight loss...



We'll see, I guess...

This is true. I don't see anything wrong with what she is doing I just never heard of someone dividing it up like that.

I agree with the PPs, any exercise is better than none.

Try doing speed jump rope for five minutes and answer your own question. Lol.

It is massively effective if done right.
