RE: Is skipping good for fat loss?
OMG! if you can manage 40minutes straight of skipping then I would be amazed!
skipping is a great excercise for getting the heart going and very good for weight loss however it depends if your after weight loss or if your cutting as I would think its very hard to skip and keep your HR at around 60-65%
(above is only my opinion and may be completly wrong!)
