Man and a woman soar rope.
Skipping makes our bones stronger. David Pereiras/
Research has proven that leaping rope increases bone mineral density. Higher bone mineral density makes you much less in all likelihood to interrupt a bone or increase osteoporosis as you grow old. Hip fractures are a chief reason of morbidity and mortality in older humans, leading to lack of independence and a large monetary burden. Improving bone density and balance at some point of your existence reduces the probabilities of journeys and falls later on.
