7 Best Exercises for Weight Loss

7. Jump Rope

Women’s Health recommends jumping rope as a major fat burner. If you can skip at 120 skips per minute, you’ll burn between 667 and 990 calories an hour. As a side benefit, it tones the entire body!

Your rope should be long enough so handles are at shoulder level when the loop touches the ground. Jump over the rope. Skip for one minute, rest, and redo. Build up your time and speed. Vary speed and intensity for greatest effect.
