Exclamation 200 a day challenge

Saw this once in another forum and thought it was a great idea.

Lets have a 200 a day jumping jack challenge...so from now until Next Thursday try and get 200 jumping jacks in each day. These are great cardio...if you need to break them down into smaller amounts througout the day but get 200 of them in no matter what. This also will helo boost our minutes for the month both personally and as a group.

Who is is with me?

most of us have a monthly goal of a certain amount of minutes exercised this month. Also as a group the forum has a goal of 20,000 minutes alltogether. Now 200 jumping jacks takes about 2 minutes. So everyday that is 5 extra minutes you can add to your total...a little bit goes a long way, and they can be done anywhere anytime

200 jumping jacks in one day? I think that would kill me! But, to experiment, I will try as many in one day as I can and see what happens.

Count me in. When I rowed in college we used to have to do these things called "jumpies." They mimick the rowing motion and are the best plyometric you can do for the sport. Here's the deal, you squat all the way down so your knees are at a 90 degree angle, then from that position jump up. As soon as you land, go right back down to the squat. We used to have to do 200 at every practice, and let me tell you, your quads, but, inner thighs - everything will burn more than you can ever imagine!

That was kind of off topic, but I was just reminded of it. But, yes, I'm in for the jumping jacks!! That will be a good warm up before my run today!

I'll do it! I could use a good motivation to get moving on the days I don't make it to the gym. This'll be a good way to get some exercise in while watching tv or surfing the 'net.

Wow, that sounds painless! I will join you on this challenge. Ironically enough, I actually did ten jumping jacks the other day, to see what it felt like. I hadn't done any since elementary school.

Great idea!
