How to Jumping Jacks
Exercise Families: Cardio
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Stand in a narrow stance, maintaining good posture with your arms at your side. Hop vertically, at the same time, raise your arms above your head, spreading your feet apart in the air.
Land softly with your knees bent, feet outside the shoulders, and rapidly reverse the movement. Spring in the air, bring both feet back together, and return your arms to your sides.
Continue the movement at a fast pace for the specified amount of time.
Jumping Jacks are a low-impact functional movement with less joint-stress compared to most plyometrics. This exercise is great for burning calories, elevating your heart rate, improving conditioning, and overall fitness.
