Jumping jacks are an excellent exercise for the overall fitness, and can be a suitable replacement for skipping, in case you don’t have your skipping rope.
How to do it:
- Stand straight with your feet together and keep your hands at your sides.
- Raise your arms over your head while jumping, and place your feet at the sides.
- Get back to the first position.
Benefits: Jumping jacks boost your heart rate. An increased heart rate causes the body to burn more calories and burn fat, which results in weight loss. By breathing deeply while performing jumping jacks, blood circulation is improved and oxygenates your blood and muscles.
