Something You May Not Know About Jumping Jacks

Jumping Jacks are easy, right?

Wrong.

Oh.My.Sweet.Jesus. How wrong that is. I remember doing jumping jacks in gym and it was no big deal. It wasn't like that torture "running laps". (I just had a flashback of Coach Johnson, my sixth grade PE teacher, yelling "No Pain, No Gain!" I thought that man was a lunatic.) Jumping Jacks, Grapevine, Windmill Toe Touches... that was all the easy stuff.

I'm not kidding. Try to do jumping jacks for one full minute. Right now. I'll wait.

Are you dying? It sucks doesn't it. Who knew?

Well, besides Vionna.

You really DO learn something new every day. Today I learned that doing jumping jacks for one minute hurts.

Wow, this is a timely post. I just finished up with my trainer today and was embarrassed that the 75 freakn' jumping jacks hurt. (In 3 sets)I didn't tell him, instead I looked it up online. From my feet to my hips and "hello", I think my bladder! Too funny, I think I will skip those.

Basically, every exercise that seemed easy as a kid hurts now. Jumping rope? Ow. Mountain climbers? Kill me now.
