Somewhere awhile back I read that it was great for women to jump up and down 50 times every day. I don't remember at all what reason they gave for it. If I figure that out, I'll let you know. But somehow it's supposed to keep your internal organs in good shape. So there's another good reason to keep jumping rope!

Found this little bit of info. on a site about rebounding, which is using one of those mini-trampoline's to jump or jog up and down. The info. comes from Dr. Dean Ornish, who is famous for his program of heart health:

The rebounding motion stimulates all internal organs, moves the cerebral-spinal fluid, aqueous fluid within the eyes (many people claim improved eyesight), and does wonders for the intestines. Many immune cells such as T-lymphocytes and macrophages are self-propelled by amebic action. These cells contain molecules identical to those in muscle tissue. All cells in the body become stronger in response to the increased G force during rebounding, and this cellular exercise results in the self-propelled immune cells being up to 5 times more active. The job description of these cells includes eating viruses, bacteria and even cancer cells, so it is good that they be active. This exercise directly strengthens the immune system.

When the outer coating of cancer cells has been dissolved by the enzymes trypsin and chymotrypsin then the cells of the immune system will attack the cancer cells. Therefore, enzyme supplements combined with rebound exercise are a useful way to combat cancer. "

personal space- that's one great incentive. I could use that.

But with these bodacious tatas, I might risk severe head trauma with all that jumpin'.
Just sayin'.

I was gonna suggest a good support bra, but I'm sure you figured that out by now.

Way to go Sharyn - I have fond memories of the jump rope too. Would love to be able to do the same (easy, thrifty, and zero storage problem - and after reading Jan C's info on rebounding, wow) - but my knees just groan even thinking about it. I suspect that my jump rope days are over. I did however just finish a page about my DGD and I playing on the monkey bars.:)


You keep on a jumping, I would have myself in a puddle and soaking pants if I tried that.


good for you Sharyn...Personal space...lol!
I use to love double dutch when I was a kid.
I think anything that makes you feel like a kid is a good thing :)


I like jumping rope too. Come to think of it, I have one somewhere ..

i like to jumprope too when i work out but im gonna have to wear a depends soon. all that jumping with my crappy bladder.......yikes..

cindy ;)


Ditto, KJS. I feel an urge to squeeze my legs together at the thought. :)


It's been awhile since I got on your page for a good morning laugh! You are a HOOT!!! :) I almost ruined another laptop, spitting coffee all over the keyboard.


I just heard that jumping rope for 10 minutes is the equivalent to running for 30 minutes...seems like a lot more fun. At least it was fun when we were kids. Good for you!

Torm, honey. That's almost as bad as running! I tell you, my body parts don't need any more motivation to head south... think about the confusion those poor appendages are suffering! North, south, north, south, with each and every jump. Heck, at some point things'll just start staying down (instead of up where they belong).

I'd rethink this one if I were you. Maybe you should consider putting a pool in your back yard.... everything seems to float no matter the age :)
