How many calories do you burn when you jump rope?

I like to jump rope and hope to lose weight this way.

For an average size person you can burn from 170-200 calories per 15minutes of continual jump roping. If you are up to 60 pounds overweight you could burn up to 270 calories in the same time frame of 15 minutes. It taked 3500 calories to burn to lose one pound.

Jumping rope is a great way to burn calories. A vigorous jumping rope workout can burn as many as 100 calories per every ten minutes.

Jumping rope is a great way to burn calories, but how many calories you burn totally depends on how long you jump rope

I'm not sure. I almost think that jumping jacks would be better because when you jump rope your just twirling the rope. With jumping jacks your arms pump up and down.
