Do you remember being in elementary school at the playground for recess or even P.E. and your teacher told you do Jumping Jacks. Jumping Jacks are the perfect choice for a quick and easy cardio move if you’re working out somewhere say, your living room or taking a break during one of your favorite television shows . Do these heart healthy moves as a standalone exercise, or pair them with ankle weights, or hand weights to keep you blood boiling and burn plenty of calories.
