Skipping is a heart-pumping exercise. When you skip, you are alternating your legs by keeping it on and away from the ground. It is also a high-speed activity. While skipping the entire muscles and ligaments in your body are stretching and contracting. This causes them to be elastic and eventually they stretch.
When you are skipping your body is completely erect stretching the spine and the back muscles too. The constant bending of the knee while skipping causes the calf muscles to expand vertically.
Skipping also adds to bone mass by making them longer. That is why skipping can help in gaining a few inches.
Another effect of skipping is that it makes our entire body slimmer. When you have a slimmer body, you look taller.

It could end up with NCR, STCAA, and the sports school which will be built in CLRAA doing the poaching.
