    Replacement? Skipping is better!!!!!

    Do it like a boxer, 1ming 50 seconds, then for 10 seconds as fast as possible - rest 30 seconds then go again - try to build upto 6 rounds of this.

    every single person who has made a comment about boxers has got it completely wrong

    boxers do not have 'lots of muscle'. most boxers have never lifted a weight in their lives.

    and boxers don't skip to lose weight -it's for training interval endurance, footwork, co-ordination. they run 5-8 miles in the morning before breakfast to lose weight for fights.

    So...skipping isnt worth my time. I did it today and got a serious sweat going. Jogging is out the question as my shins are f***ed and cycling is **** as I get cramp way too soon.
