Move #2: Seated Jumping Jacks

Cardio Move: 20 repetitions

This jumping jack variation is a great way to get your heart pumping minus the higher impact of the traditional version.

How to do it: Sit tall on the edge of your chair, elbows bent in front of your body, toes lightly tapped on the floor [as shown in photo A]. Quickly open your arms and legs into a wide ‘X’ shape, flexing your feet so that only your heels lightly touch the ground [as shown in photo B]. Repeat as fast as you can.
