It says it burns more calories faster than jogging quicker. What are your guys opinions on this? Thanks. ☺️

Yep, that's right! :)

Any kind of jumping burns serious calories - you're using your whole posterior chain! Jump, jump squats, jumping jacks, star jumps, etc, they're all good!

I agree

Unripe also helps with stamina, apart from cardio... helps with staying on your toes longer

What's a good time to work up to and how many times a week for effectiveness? Thanks!

Don't worry about tripping just start up again. The technique will come with practice :)
