How to get the most out of Jumping Jacks Article by: John Abdo

Read Fitness for your Life.

While standing upright with feet spaced parallel to each other a bit narrower than shoulders width apart and arms hanging straight at your sides, conduct short upward jumps spreading your legs slightly to each side while simultaneously lifting your arms laterally trying to clap your hands over head. Strive to achieve a coordinated tempo for at least 30 seconds. As you advance you can add time or increase repetitions, and slightly increase your speed on occasion. Have fun while accelerating your heart and breathing rate a bit knowing that you’re flushing blood and oxygen throughout your body while burning a few calories in the process. [Safety instructions: Please wear non-slip shoes, lose clothing and jump on a soft surface like grass or carpet].
