Jumping jacks are an awesome cardiovascular exercise! They’re easy, so anyone can do them. They get the heart rate up pretty fast and are good for increasing cardiovascular health. Not to mention they pack a serious calorie burn! But doing only 100 at a time or 500 jumping jacks spread out throughout the day isn’t really helping you. The key is to sustain an elevated heart rate for an extended amount of time. So here’s a challenge I’ve come up with. Build your endurance.
It's supposed to say "So here are some facts: 1. There are about 3500 calories in one pound of fat. 2. Every two jumping jacks = 1 calorie burnt. 3. 7000 jumping jacks = 1 pound gone. 4. 10 sets of 100 jumping jacks for 1 week will burn one pound. So on top of your current diet and exercise regime, you can add on 10 sets of 100 jumping jacks. Let's try this, because a pound lighter is a pound lighter."
3,500 calories is equivalent to 1 lb. You burn aprox 100 cals doing jumping jacks in 10 minutes. Translates to ~ 350 minutes/4 hours a week/50 minutes a day. Possible? Maybe. 10 sets of 5 minutes of jumping jacks every day for a week.
