Jumping Jacks: A Back to Basics Move
I love Jumping Jacks because they are so versatile, and they remind me of high school gym class! It’s a great exercise to add into your workout in between sets or strength training exercises to keep your heart rate up, save time and burn more calories by minimizing your rest time. Make your jumping jacks a little more challenging and work your legs a little harder by placing a lightweight exercise band around your ankles.
Do it Right
- Begin standing in a neutral position – feet hips distance apart, knees soft, abdominals tight & chest lifted
- Simultaneously jump feet out to the sides wider than hips distance while raising both arms out to the side and over head
- Jump back to return to starting position
