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.

I think I'll try this! It's something new to add variety to what we do!

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?

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.
