I could do that. My husband and kids may thing I have lost it, but on the other hand I bet my 9 yr old and 2 yr old may join me. this could be alot of fun. I never find time to get on my gazelle, I think I could get this in. Actually I think I will go start them right now. I will let you know how it goes.

Well no one laughed at me, my husband just said have fun. and my 9 yr old just said you are on your own there mom. ha-ha! Then I went downstairs and well I did 61, the backs of my legs went, I don't think so... lol So I folded a load of laundry and did 70 more. put the clothes away and did the remaining 70. When I accepted the challenge I seriously thought 200 jumping jacks what a breeze!, hopefully tonight I won't have to break them up. I never thought about what it does to the backs of your legs.

I'm in for this week. Note to all fellow apartment dwellers - make sure you do them before people are sleeping, or you might get people knocking on your door...jumping jacks make a LOT of noise :-)

I'm totally in! I started this with my workout today. I did 150 (did 44, walked in place for a minute, 60, walked in place for a minute, then the remaining 46) so far, and plan to do the rest a bit later. Hopefully soon I can do all 200 at once!

OK! I'm going to do this! I will also probably have to break them up. I haven't done jumping jacks since high school gym class, but with some up beat music playing it could be fun!

lol sorry guys

I meant this week. may 1st- may 7. It was sunday when I posted this. but i bet you guys knew what I meant

I'm doing mine later today

what I usually do is 100 straight at fast tempo, then i do some stretches and deep breaths and do the last 100. try making your arms go WAY up into the air and back way down. This works the tummy really nicely.

I'm afraid my belly flops too much to do any jumping jacks yet! How about if I do crunches instead?

mandalinn82
05-01-2006, 06:35 PM
HAHAHA. Funny NSV - started doing my jumping jacks, planned to do 100. At #13, my pants fell down. Guess I went down a size?

Thought I'd share. Make sure you wear a belt and/or something that isn't going to fall off.

DewCan
05-01-2006, 06:59 PM
Mandalinn, that is TOO funny :lol: :lol: For sure that's a size down.

Hey, this sounds like fun. I wonder how many calories are burned by doing 200 jumping jacks. . .

DewCan
05-01-2006, 07:29 PM
Okay, I almost died doing that! How out of shape am I?! I had to keep taking breaks. In the middle of it all, I found out that I'm an Auntie again. Another nephew, boys outnumber us in my family big time.

You can calculate it based on time and your weight here:

It looks like for me, I'd burn:

# Minutes # Calories
1 9
5 44
10 88
20 176
30 263
40 351
50 439
60 (1 Hour) 527

Now to see how long it takes me to do 200 jumping jacks. :)

05-01-2006, 07:45 PM
Oh my. That is SO much harder than I thought it would be! I am breathing so hard right now, and I only did 100. I will have to try to do the other ones later tonight. Geez!

AndrewsMum
05-01-2006, 08:15 PM
Jen415. im with ya on the crunches, i cant do anything that involves jumping!

DewCan
05-01-2006, 09:10 PM
Holy, for me that burns 13 cal per minute. If only I could do 270 minutes of them, that's how much I have to do to lose 1 pound.
Hmm... I didn't time it though. I kept having to take breaks. Boy did those jugs of mine bounce. I can call them that as I'm breastfeeding :bb: :lol:
Hope saying that doesn't get me in trouble, I've heard there are some touchy subjects that get kicked off this site. I not really worried though.

I break mine into 25 and do them throughout the day. It only takes a minute or so, 8 times a day, and prevents my calves from feeling like they are going to fall off. I got my 200 in today!

05-02-2006, 05:55 PM
i made it to 150 ... not bad for not doing them since high school! :lol:

Genesis--I'm amazed you could do all that after doing 200 jumping jacks. Awesome! I'm so winded by time I get done with the jumping jacks I can barely make it to my chair. LOL!

Genesis
05-02-2006, 07:01 PM
I broke it up....

50 jumping jacks
20 squat jumps
20 R round house kicks
50 jumping jacks
20 L round house kicks
20 push ups
50 jumping jacks
20 squat jumps
20 R round house kicks
50 jumping jacks
20 L round house kicks
20 push ups

By breaking it up it made the time fly by and I didn't get too tired because I was using different muscle groups. Next time I'm going to throw in some ab crunches.

DewCan
05-02-2006, 08:12 PM
You guys are good!!

I felt so guilty about only doing 30 this am, that I finished and did 170 this afternoon. I'm just sore form yesterday, and tomorrow won't be any better :lol:

you must be in good shape if this isn't hard for you

So I just did my 200, I did them like this:
30
20
30
20
with a couple second between, then stopped for a min
20
30
20
20
20
again with stops for a few seconds in between, I did an extra 10

It only took me about 6 min(about 8 with breaks). My legs are a bit sore and im winded... but other that... maybe I wasnt doing them good enough?

05-02-2006, 10:23 PM
So I just did another 200 to make up for yesterday cuz I started a day late.

05-03-2006, 03:21 PM
My 200 are done - and this time I did them in sets of 50, instead of sets of 25! And I can REALLY feel it in my legs, and to a lesser degree, in my shoulders.

05-03-2006, 05:56 PM
my arms and tummy are sore from last night - wow!
we shall see how tonight goes - I have other exercise I want to do tonight it is going to be a lot harder!

I just did my 200 just now. I felt a little sore in my stomach but I guess my abs are working!

It takes about four minutes for me to do 200 so according to the chart, I burn about 40 calories.

I just did my 200. Arms are a bit sore. I'm use to jogging and walking...I guess I need to work on my arms more often.

05-03-2006, 11:55 PM
I did my pilates work out then did my 200. They were a bit harder then last night cuz I am sore so I did them in sets of 20 with short stops in between. Took me 4-6 min.

I gotta jog in a bit, ack! That could be sore!

I followed what others said and broke up the Jumpng jacks through out the day and it makes a big difference. I tried to do 25 each time I got up from my desk to use the little girls room yesterday, and it worked great, no one saw me do them cause I was in the bathroom and it was a nice little stretch after sitting at my desk. I used the "since you are up" thought, I drink alot of water at work I go to the bathroom about every 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. So I got them all in before I even went home last night.

DewCan

Hi all
you're doing fantastic.
I had to stop as it was really hard on my chest. I'm breast feeding and this combo isn't good. I'm going to try it again once I'm done all the feeding, hopefully in 6 months or so. Best of luck to you all, keep it up.

Skipped yesterday - there was no way - I had done a major leg workout the day before and overdid it, and could barely walk - so I added an extra 100 crunches to my usual 100.

Today - all 200 done.

Genesis
