I only did 50 this morning, because I did not realize how much noise and floor-shaking jumping jacks would do! I live on the top floor of a triple decker, and even though my neighbors had all left, one of my roommates was still asleep. I am hoping that I can get in the rest at work today, because you are right -- jumping jacks do not take long at all!

Thanks for posting it up here.
I've been around the other forum and have been doing these since.
It really gives you an overall tightness, and soreness, after a few days.
Got to love it !

I have been going strong with my jumping jacks and adding 200 crunches as well (switching up the type of crunch so as not to overwork one area) it takes me about 10 minutes per day and has really beed adding up. Maja you are right it is surprising how something as little as jumping jacks can make your legs so fatigued and tight the next day!

I have been bad and slacking on the jumping jacks. As much as I dislike my neighbors, I would rather not do 200 jumping jacks on their heads. Do any of you doing the challenge live above people? Do you have any noise-reduction tips?

You all must be in wayyy better shape than me, because I did 50 real jumping jacks last night (outside, to not disturb the neighbors), and was thoroughly beat at 50. But I will do as many a day as I can.

I don't live above anyone haha I can do them whenever I like lol...I do mine in sets of 50...so don't feel bad. You think when we are done with these we should change it to something else like situps?

Done with jumping jacks? I can't fathom being done with anything right now!

I only did 50 jumping jacks three days ago, and my calves are still aching. Is this normal?

That sounds like a plan, we could do sit ups or jumping jacks...then when your calves were sore you would have an alternative...

ladyjames - my calves get tight after I do them as well...lets try adding some situps in.

Cooooooool. How do you do situps by yourself? I don't have a SO or otherwise exercise partner. And would you know that now five days later, my calves still hurt? I am just going to do my jumping jacks despite the pain, if the pain won't go away! (Except on dance class nights, yayyyyyyyyy for dance class!)
