The challenge is jumping Jack's.

How hard can it be to do jumping jacks?
https://youtu.be/xb8fLFd6Ufw

The challenge: 1st day within 24hrs 100 increasing the amount every day with 100 more.

The challenge is to see how many days you can keep this up for.

JUSt KiDDing, seriously don't do it!

The real challenge is to do them every day confidently (have fun doing them) as they are a great cardio exercise that takes no equipment that can be done practically anywhere at any time alone or in a group.

Places not to jumping kacks, on a bus or in an elevator, or operating heavy equipment or doing any type of surgical procedure, that risks the life of patient.

Your jumping Jack's can be spread out over the space of the day or all in one session, your choice but just do them, as they will burn up body fat, paving the way to a flat stomach.

These jumping Jack's can be done in what ever way you want.
Here are 20 variations

However doing the basic jumping Jack's might become boring or not challenging enough for you, then it is time to mix it up with some variety; martial art style

Jumping kacks is not just for indoors, as outside on the beach can keep you in this challenge

Jumping Jack's in water if there is a pool nearby

So no water then you can do funky jumping Jack's to music they count also

For me this is day 4 of the challenge, thefore 400 jumping Jack's for me today.

My TKD CI was big on jumping jacks, she was an Olympic medallist and captain of the team.

The jumping Jack's I'm doing are a part of my kicking and footwork warm up preparation which also promotes endurance and having a good warm up.

Not forgetting the improving circulation and cardio benefits.

i don't mind Jumping Jacks for a challenge. Considering how many different ones there are for various exercises.

But this is a first where you start at 100 and then build up. Every other one i've seen is where you commence at 1 and then you work your way up by 1 everyday, so your doing 365 at the end of the year.

That isn't a bad idea, indeed.

To be honest, I only lasted one week with this challenge, getting to 500 on day five.

As I was also doing a monkey bar challenge and damaged my ankle twice in the process, due to landing incorrectly when not getting from one end to the other without dropping down.

When recovered I will take off where leaving off and start with 600 on day six.

It is too bad actually that I had to stop jumping, as I lost a few kilos with this challenge.
