Jumping Jacks

So we read recently that jumping jacks are good for weight loss

As they are an aerobic exercise they increase your heart rate and when this increases we increase our calories burned. And they are known to reduce tummy fat too.

What’s great about jumping jacks is that they are easy to do, free as they don’t require any expensive equipment and they put a smile on your face – even better, your face gets a happy workout too!

How to:

  1. Stand with the arms on the sides with your back straight and abdomen tucked in.
  2. The first locomotion involves jumping up and spreading the legs apart while the arms have to be over the head until you can clap with the hands. The legs should be left apart.
  3. While jumping again, the legs should be brought back together and the arms should be brought to the sides.
  4. This should be repeated until the heart beat goes up.
