This Chart was adapted from the "Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness" 
[pp.33-37 (1979) and pp.56-60 (1980)] and from "Ropics" by Dr. Ken Solis

2009 research on Heart rate monitoring and exercise

How to use this chart:

  1. Find your weight in the Current Weight column.
    ..

  2. Multiply your Current Weight by the number adjacent to your current weight, which is the Calories Per Minute (CPM) multiplier.
    ..

  3. Multiply the the above result by the jump roping Duration (number of minutes).

Example #1: 
Your Current Weight = 175 lbs. 
Duration = 30 minutes
CPM = 15.1 cpm
..

  • Calories Burned = 15.1cpm x 30 min
    Calories Burned = 453 calories!
    ..

Example#2: 
Your Current Weight = 175 lbs. 
Duration = 1 hour (60 minutes)
CPM = 15.1 cpm
..

  • Calories Burned = 15.1 x 60
    Calories Burned = 906 calories!

Note: Calculations for body weights above 230 lbs. require an additional  multiplier of 0.4 cpm for each five pound increment in weight, beyond 230 lbs..

Example #3: 
Your Current Weight = 280 lbs. 
Duration = 30 minutes
..
Five Pound Increments = (280-230)/5 = 50/5 = 10
CPM for 230 lbs. = 19.9
CPM Multiplier Correction for 280 lbs. = 10 x 0.4 = 4 cpm
CPM for 280 lbs. = 19.9 cpm + 4cpm 
CPM for 280 lbs. = 23.9cpm
..

  • Calories Burned = 23.9 cpm x 30 min
    Calories Burned = 717 calories!
