Exercise: Jumping rope is very good exercise, surely will increase stamina and should reduce fat if you do this exercise frequently and for enough time. It will likely need to be accompanied with other aerobic exercise like running, cycling, swimming, spinning to achieve your goals. It is only part of an exercise plan. Best wishes.

No: If your heart is "jumping" when you smoke marijuana, this is a worrisome sign. Your heart "jumping" is really never the norm. You may wish to speak to a doctor and, of course, stop smoking "weed" altogether -- before it gets any worse.

Dr. Wm. Marcus Spurlock
Preventive Medicine 40 years experience
Exercise: Begin your exercise program slowly with lower weights and lesser times. As you get stronger, you should be able to do increasingly more weight and times. Give your muscles time to accomodate the changes so that you don't pay the price of overexertion. Listen to your body. It will tell you when you can do more.

Run for 20min: To get aerobic fitness, try running. Start with a 3minute jog on day one and repeat this for 3days. Then increase length of run by 2minutes every 3 times you run, and work your way upto 20mins. That is sufficient to give you stamina for high demand sports such as squash.
