when did your friend go to roopkund? theres a chance he went with me :D

btw group is called Great Hyderabad Adventure Club. There are also other groups like Hyderabad trekking club, Hyderabad adventures and trekking club (HATs), wildwoods adventure clubs, The Great Escape etc etc
Thats really cool. I think my friend went in 2016 I think. I have another friend who is a local of lohajung and during my last trip to India, I was with him to do the roopkund trek. sadly, the place was closed because people were trashing the hike. we went to a nearby short hike and we managed to collect a big trash bag full of kurkure wrappers on our way back. I mean... who would really eat kurkure on a hike :facepalm:

btw, I am a hyderabadi, next time when I am home lets go on a hike :D

As for your question, seems like Breckenridge. But could be anyone between Telluride, Aspen Snowmass, Loveland, Silver Mountain as he has multiple options around him.
loveland... but yeah; so many options.

@ BOO! Where is this?
https://skiloveland.com/
Its right on the continental divide on the rocky mountains. the ski lift takes you over 12k feet and the highest ski lift takes you just over 13k feet. This is close to the place where I also fly.

We had our lunch here. https://skiloveland.com/the-mountain/ptarmigan-roost-cafe/

And the ski lift behind the cafe is where you go above 13k. I was just a beginner so...

Hi all,

Does the amount of calories burned while Jumping Rope for 5 sessions of 2 minutes each (spread out during the course of the whole day) equate to a single 10 minute session? (Since I can't go much beyond 2-3 minutes at a time currently, I'm thinking it's better to have multiple shorter sessions to increase overall workout volume).

& is there any way of preventing calluses from being formed on one's big toes? I've attempted jumping rope barefoot recently. At the most, I can think of wearing shoes. (Though that hadn't helped when I'd tried eons ago). So any other things that I could try? Or is it one of those things that you just need to push past until eventually the problem solves itself?

Thanks for your time. Cheers.

^Jumping rope is usually a cardio exercise. You can start slow and then gradually increase as you increase your endurance. However IF your overweight, I'd suggest going slow on rope skipping since you might be putting enormous load on your knees and ankles.

Can't prevent calluses. You can use smooth surface when jumping rope, use moisturisers but ultimately you cant prevent them. I get them on my palms and I just use nailcutter to cut away the skin

Hi, & thanks for replying. I'm already doing a bit of indoor cycling & walking. So jumping rope is something I wanted to add to the mix. So while I'm indeed overweight, I don't intend on dialing up the intensity on the jump rope any time soon.

Any idea with regard to how the calories burned compare, when jumping rope in a single session of, say, 10 minutes versus doing the same 10 minutes in 5 sessions of 2 minutes each? I'm assuming it's going to be roughly the same, going by how it's the same for an exercise like walking. But just wanted to confirm.

Cheers!

I wanted to post this yesterday but it took a while to upload the video.

I ran 10k for the first time in my life. I mean I never ran before. It was a mix of running and walking to finish 10k in 1:24 though. Felt really good. :)
