12 Days of Fitness Day #11 Jumping Jacks

On the eleventh day of Christmas

My Y Coach gave to me:

25 Jumping Jacks

20 Plank Taps

20 Push Ups

15 Air squats

15 Burpees

10 Plank Jacks

10 Jump Lunges

5 Triceps push ups

5 dive-bomber push ups

2 minutes of wall squats

And one minute planking by the tree

Jumping Jacks. Need I say more? These are a throwback to gym class in grade school and I still enjoy doing them. Jumping jacks are a great total body exercise. There are many variations on the jumping jack (see videos below) that you can learn to accommodate your current level of health and fitness. My favorite is to turn on Pharrell Williams' song "Happy" and jump/dance/bop around my living room. Not always a pretty sight!! Please remember to use good form at all times.
