On to the Next Part of the Men Who Knit Fitness Challenge - Jumping Jacks or Jump-n-Jacks
Jumping Jacks are a Cardiovascular exercise that I always begin with, because it's simple and it really gets you in the mood of working out. It starts up those endorphins and your heart starts pumping.
For a proper Jumping Jack, follow this links:
I like to do 100 Jumping Jacks before my workout , and another 100 after I finish my workout.
Do not overdo it, though. Jumping Jacks are meant to just get your cardiovascular system going.
Now if you're going along with the Previous Post, and you've set your alarm to a certain time. You would begin as such:
Alarm clock rings, you do 100 jumping jacks followed by your sets of pushups discussed. You will then proceed to Running and Situp/crunches, which we will discuss on a later post. Once you have completed your workout, do 100 jumping jacks. Or do what I do and max myself out.
Another form of the Jumping Jack that I like to do involves touching the ground in between each jump. For example: Jump 2 Down Up, Jump 2 Down Up. It really gets the heart pumping fast.
Hope this helps you out!
And lets get into shape for that calender!!!!
