The jumping jacks, also known as jumping jacks, are a full-body exercise that is often performed as part of a warm-up before vigorous physical activity or as a component of a high intensity training or HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training).
Jumping jacks are a cardiovascular exercise of body weight that does not require any equipment. They are based on repetitive jumping movements with a specific movement pattern.
Jumping jacks work various muscle groups throughout the body. These include:
The number of repetitions or duration of jumping jacks you should do depends on your fitness level and your training goals. As a general rule of thumb, you could start by doing jumping jacks for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then rest for 15-30 seconds. You can repeat this several times, depending on your fitness level. As your stamina improves, you can increase the duration of the exercise and decrease the rest times.
As always, it’s important to remember to warm up before any physical activity to prepare your muscles and prevent injury. And if you’re new to exercise or have a medical condition, it’s a good idea to talk to a doctor or fitness professional before beginning a new training program.
