Naturally there are some variables here, such as - how high you jump, how fast you jump, how fast you run, how you are incorporating the workout into other parts of your body. Essentially, jumping rope is pretty much the same as running in place, so between one or the other, it's a stalemate.
jumping rope burns a substanial amount more calories than running in place will. you work more muscles when jumping rope due to the fact that balance and cordination are aslo involved.
