Exercise Tip 8: Jumping Jacks

Jumping Jacks, aka Side-Straddle Hops or Star Jumps, were popularized in the mid 1950's by fitness expert Jack LaLanne. Used commonly to warm up before exercises, jumping jacks are an exercise all to themselves, incorporating many different muscles of the body.

Start standing with your feet together and hands touching at your sides, then jump to a position with the feet spread wide and hands touching overhead. Jump and return to the initial position.
