  title={Jumping Rope Intervention on Health-Related Physical Fitness in Students with Intellectual Impairment},
  author={Chao-Chien Chen and Yi-Chun Lin},
The main purpose of this study was to examine the effect of jumping rope training on the health-related physical fitness in students with intellectual impairment. Nine students aged between 13-15 and who at Chung-Shan Junior High School in Taichung City were selected as the study sample. Using the random sampling method, students were divided into the experimental group (N=6) and the control group (N=3). Tests of health-related physical fitness were conducted before and after the training. The…

Physical Fitness Promotion among Adolescents: Effects of a Jump Rope-Based Physical Activity Afterschool Program
It is suggested that the jump rope-based afterschool program with freestyle rope skipping would be more effective than traditional jump rope to promote physical fitness performance among adolescents.
Effectiveness of the Multistage Jumping Rope Program in Enhancing the Physical Fitness Levels among University Students
Several studies have shown that there has been a sudden decrease in physical activity levels among University students. This is alarming as physical inactivity is a known risk factor for many chronic
Effects of a Training program of Rope Skipping on the Balance of Educable Mentally Retarded Boys
Background and Aim: Balance in in individuals with intellectual disability is very important due to weakness in the balance of implementing tasks. The present study aimed at evaluating the effects of
The Effect of Eight Weeks of Rope and Elastic Trainings on Physical Fitness of Student Children
Introduction: Physical activity and having a decent level of physical fitness for all ages are recommended. However, it is not clear which exercise program has more favorable effects during
The Effects of the Rope Jump Training Program in Physical Education Lessons on Strength, Speed and VO 2 max in Children
The aim of this study is to examine the effects of rope-jump training program in physical education lessons on strength, speed and VO2 max in 10-12 year old boys. 240 male students; rope-jump group
A comparison of two aerobic training methods (running vs rope jumping) on health-related physical fitness in 10 to 12 years old boys
The purpose of this study was to compare of two aerobic training methods on health-related physical fitness in 10 to 12 years old boys. Thirty-three male students (age 11.27±0.64 year, weight
Investigating the Effects of 8 Weeks of Rope Skipping on Static and Dynamic Balance of Educable Mentally Retarded Boys
The effects of 8 weeks of rope skipping on static and dynamic balance of educable mentally retarded boys were studied. The results showed a significant difference in static balance (P =0.019) and
The Effect of Rope Jumping Exercise on Postural Control, Static and Dynamic Balance in Male Students with Cavus Foot
This quasi-experimental study was done on 450 male students aged 13-10 years in Jarghouyeh sofla and found that the subjects of the experimental group participated in a rope jumping training protocol three 45-minute sessions per week for 12 weeks and did not participate in any regular physical activity program in this time.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a 7-week of rope-jump training on speed, endurance and agility in middle school male students. Twenty eight male students (age 11.87±0.33
The effect of rope jump training on serum levels of lipocalin-2, anthropometric parameters, and aerobic power in obese adolescent boys
While rope jump exercise training enhanced anthropometric parameters and aerobic power in obese adolescents, it failed to significantly alter the serum lipocalin-2 level, as an inflammatory marker.


The impact of rope jumping exercise on physical fitness of visually impaired students.
Through ANCOVA analysis, there was a significant difference in the flexibility and aerobic capacity for the experimental group and a significant improvement on their physical fitness after training.
Effects of Weighted Rope Jump Training on Power Performance Tests in Collegians
The purpose of this investigation was to determine the efficacy of weighted jump ropes as an alternative to core plyometic exercises in developing explosive-reactive power and anaerobic capacity.
Effects of resistance training on metabolic fitness in children and adolescents: a systematic review
More robustly designed single modality randomized controlled trials utilizing standardized reporting and precise outcome assessments are required to determine the extent of health outcomes attributable solely to RT and to enable the development of evidence‐based obesity prevention and treatment strategies in this cohort.
Changes in body composition after a 12‐wk aerobic exercise program in obese boys
Vigorous supervised aerobic training in obese boys has beneficial effects on body composition, fitness and leisure time activities that are not apparent by measurement of changes in body weight alone.
Exercise alone reduces insulin resistance in obese children independently of changes in body composition.
An 8-wk exercise training program increases insulin sensitivity in obese children, and this improvement occurred in the presence of increased cardiorespiratory fitness but is independent of measurable changes in body composition.
Effects of Exercises for Fundamental Movement Skills in Mentally Retarded Children
Objective: Entamoeba histolytica is one of the common intestinal protozoans in the Middle East. Treatment of infection has some difficulties by metronidazole because of the long course of therapy and
Differences in cardiovascular disease risk between nondiabetic adults with mental retardation with and without Down syndrome.
It is suggested that women with Down syndrome may be less likely to express the insulin resistance syndrome, and men and women with down syndrome may possess fewer atherosclerotic risk factors than the comparison groups.
Exercise in weight management of obesity.
There is a clear dissociation between the adaptation of cardiorespiratory fitness and the improvements in the metabolic risk profile that can be induced by endurance training programs, and as long as the increase in energy expenditure is sufficient, low-intensity endurance exercise is likely to generate beneficial metabolic effects that would be essentially similar to those produced by high-intensity exercise.
