The Jumping Jack is an exercise most of us are familiar with since our childhood. This is a great bodyweight exercise for improving cardiovascular fitness and conditioning. You just need your bodyweight and a small area to carry out this movement. You can also use this exercise as part of a circuit training regime.
Depending on how fit you are, you can increase intensity by performing this exercise moving your arms and legs faster over a shorter period of time, or perform a squat when the legs are spread out from the body, you can also improve your endurance by maintaining a steady rhythm over a longer period of time.
