Star Jumps


💡Hope everyone had a nice Mid-Autumn Festival! 😊 As tradition, we eat mooncakes to celebrate the festivity.

This week we will show a kid-friendly exercise that is perfect for the occasion.

Star Jumps are a full-body exercise that target multiple muscle groups in your body, such as the quadriceps, gluteal muscles, and your calves or hamstrings.

We will start with an easy modification for Star Jumps.

Keeping one foot on the ground, raise the other leg out to your side as you swing both your arms above your head. Repeat this exercise for 5 times for each side of the leg and alternate after each repetition.

Now when you feel comfortable or you find that this is too easy you can complete this jumping exercise.

Starting in a squat position with your feet together and palms touching the side of your legs, jump high into the air, extending your arms and legs to the side to make a star. Land softly with your feet together and lower yourself back into the starting position. Repeat this for a total of 10-15 times.

To increase the intensity of this exercise you can also add a 180-degree turn when jumping to face the opposite direction when you land.
