Squat Jack

Target area(s): full body (cardio) and legs

How to perform a squat jack:

Start standing with your hands at your side.  Begin a regular jumping jack, extending your legs out to the side and arms over your head.

After 2 regular jumping jacks place your hands lightly behind your head (as you would in a crunch), but continue moving your legs.

Lower your upper body so that you are in a semi-squat position.  Continue moving your legs in and out, but just in a constant lowered state.

Do the squat jack 20 times, rest for 30 seconds and complete 4 more sets for a total of 100 squat jacks.
