Warmup Jumping rope...

Would Jumping rope be a good warmup for a long ride? I know it can be a good workout almost by itself. Boxers do it to build up their legs.

I'd say about 10 mins as a warm up should do it. What do you think?

10 minutes jumping rope would get you warmed up allright..

I think 5minutes would def suffice..

Jumping rope is a good plyometric exercise. But I'm not sure it'd be any better for warm up than spending those 10 minutes pedaling.

Just a thought.

10 minutes of jumping jacks would be just as effective.. both are high impact.. and really give you nothing specific towards cycling..
