25 jumping jacks
- Stand up straight. As simple as standing up straight sounds, there is a technique to it. Relax your shoulders back and down along your spine.
- Hold your arms at your sides and feet shoulder width. From an upright, standing position widen your stance so that your feet are below your shoulders. Keep your arms beside your body and relaxed
- Jump and extend your arms overhead. With your feet shoulder width apart, slightly bend your knees so you can hop. As you hop, or jump just a few inches off the ground, lift your arms overhead until your hands are about shoulder width apart.
- Extend your legs. As you jump, open your legs wider than shoulder width as you lift your arms overhead. Give or take some space depending on your height and leave a wide amount of space between your feet
- Land in the starting position. After jumping in the air, gently land in the first position with arms at your sides and feet shoulder width apart.
- Stand straight, with your tailbone tucked in. Engage your core by pulling in your upper ribs and belly
- Lift your heels until you’re standing on your tippy toes. Distribute most of your weight onto the balls of your feet, and keep your legs straight.
- Stay on your tippy toes for two seconds. Then, begin to lower your heels, and move your weight away from the balls of your feet.
- Begin in a standing position. Your feet should be shoulder-width apart. Now, lower your body into a squatting position, placing your hands on the floor in front of you.
- Kick your feet back so that you are in push-up position. Beginners or those uncomfortable kicking their feet back can walk back into the pushup position. Keep your hands firmly on the ground to support your body.
- Lower your chest to do a push-up. Bring your chest back up.
- Kick your feet back to their original position. Beginners or those uncomfortable kicking their feet back can walk back into the original position. Stand up, and then jump into the air while clapping your arms overhead.
- Repeat. Do 10 reps to complete one set. If you are a beginner or are out of shape, start off with 5 burpees in a row.
- Have your knees bent and the balls of your feet and heels placed flat on the ground.
- Place your hands on opposing shoulders, so that your arms are crossed over your chest, or behind your head. This allows you a central rising point.
- Tighten your abdominal muscles gently by drawing in your belly button to your spine.
- keeping your heels on the ground and your toes flat to the ground, slowly and gently lift your head first, followed by your shoulder blades. Focus your eyes on your bent knees, all the while gently contracting the abdominal muscles. Pull up from the floor until you’re at a ninety-degree angle, or when the elbows are on, or past, the knees.
- Hold the position for a second. Slowly bring the torso back to the floor but try to keep it slightly elevated off the ground. This means not to place your back flat to the ground but to keep a slight, yet relaxed, arch
- Repeat steps 3-5 for the remainder of the exercise. Only do two to three if you’re a beginner and slowly build up the amount over time, as your strength increases. Then hopefully you will lose weight, too!
