Day 4 - December 17th

Jumpin' Jack Flash...It's a gas, gas, gas! So I hope this day finds you without gas but doing as many jumping jacks as you can. You will receive 15 points for every 25 jumping jacks you do.

  1. Step1
    Begin by standing with your feet together and arms at your sides. Tighten your abdominal muscles to pull your pelvis forward and take the curve out of your lower back.
  2. Step2
    Bend your knees and jump, moving your feet apart until they are wider than your shoulders. At the same time, raise your arms over your head. You should be on the balls of your feet.
  3. Step3
    Keep your knees bent while you jump again, bringing your feet together and your arms back to your sides. At the end of the movement, your weight should be on your heels.
  4. Step4
    Repeat the exercise, working in sets and resting briefly in between. As you become more fit, perform jumping jacks faster and for a certain length of time rather than in sets.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” 

On the fourth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.
