Is skipping safe for weight loss?
Q: I am a 25 years old female, 150 cm tall and weigh 59 kg. Is skipping a good exercise for weight loss? Are there any side effect of skipping?
A:Skipping per se, at your age is not bad for your knees but you do have to consider a few factors:
- Do wear a cushioned pair of shoes when you skip so as to reduce the wear and tear of the joints.
- Do skip on a soft surface like a mud track or a field instead of hard ground or the floor. This will again ensure less wear and tear.
