The Impact of Jump Rope Exercise on the Cardiovascular Endurance of Chinese Middle School Students

Zhuozhuo Xin, Lim Pek, Haojun Zhao


This study employed a pre-test and post-test experimental design involving 90 randomly selected first-year students from Jinan’s Seventh Middle School. The students were divided into two experimental groups (A and B) and a control group for a 12-week training intervention. Training modalities included rope jumping, endurance running, and general physical activities during school recess. Cardiovascular endurance was assessed through maximal oxygen uptake tests on a watt bike. The study found that rope jumping positively impacts cardiovascular endurance in middle school students and is more effective than running. This research provides theoretical support for promoting rope jumping in China, off ers alternative training options for improving cardiovascular endurance among middle school students, and suggests enhancements for school physical activity programs.
