100 Jumping Jacks Challenge Additional Information

This is a challenge that you should approach with optimism, because most people will be able to do it on their first try. Jumping jacks are very good for getting your heart rate up, and they can make you break a sweat in no time, but they are not so difficult that you need special training in order to do one hundred of them all at once. You should look over the following tips, though, so that you can be sure to do the right thing. 

1. Check for Space

Before you get started, you need to be sure that you have enough space to actually do the jumping jacks. Stand with your arms and legs spread out wide to see if you will strike walls, doors, or pieces of furniture. 

2. Wear Running Shoes

You probably want to wear running shoes when you do this since you will be pushing off with the sides of your feet and you need to have traction. This can also help to soften the blow each time that you land. 

3. Breathe Quickly

Do not try to take long, deep breaths. This will only throw off the rhythm that you need. Instead, take short little breaths as you bring your arms upward. These will give you enough oxygen to keep your body from getting tired, but they will not break your stride. 

4. Plant Your Feet 

It is important that you choose a spot to plant your feet when you come down from each jump. Aim for this place every time. This will make it so that you are not jumping too high or too low. It will also keep you from overextending your reach, something that could lead to knee or ankle injuries. 

5. Watch for Movement

Many people accidently move when they are doing jumping jacks because it is hard to jump up and down in a perfectly straight fashion. You need to keep your eyes on your surroundings so that you do not slowly move into something. If you run into a table or a chair, you could be hurt.
