GIVE ME 100!!
In researching various blogs and websites to keep my fitness knowledge current and fun, I came across a few stating that 1000 jumping jacks would burn 1lb of fat (a.k.a. 3500 calories). I found this to be interesting and have made this my new challenge for my clients and fans. So, if I can burn various amounts of calories with normal weekly strength training and cardio sessions, why can't I challenge myself to burn an extra 1lb a week!
Check out this article about the challenge from Livestrong.com:
Ladies... that's it... on top of our normal workouts, I challenge you to perform an extra 1000 jumping jacks a week! It's as simple as that. From my research, these do not need to be performed all at once to reap the rewards.They can be spread throughout the week and throughout the day. This week, I performed around 150 jumping jacks per day. Some days I toughed it out and completed them all at once, and other days I spread them out, doing 20 here and 20 there. (Obviously, the number of jumping jacks will need to be adjusted according to your individual fitness level and your workout for the day.) For the month of October, we will be adding in these jumping jacks and aiming for an extra 1lb of fat loss per week. So, by the end of October, that's 4 EXTRA pounds!!!! Let's challege the challenge together! STOP AND GIVE ME 100!!!!
