Jumping Jacks

I recently started doing these every afternoon. After reading up on this I learned why I enjoy it. It takes coordination and raises your heartbeat.

If you can, try it and tell me what you think.

Have a great weekend and beautiful Sabbath.

All my best,

Leslie

Always Be Safe.

Sorry Leslie, but I can nearly do the arm part but not the legs. I hope you have a beautiful sabbath to, peace. πŸ¦‹

I will try this as soon as I find my helmet! :D

If you think you will hurt yourself, it's not worth it.

That is good,sound advice that I often don't listen to! Lol!

:)

I can only do jumping jacks with my right leg because my left leg has a mind of its own. As a matter of fact, so do I! Enjoy your weekend! :-D

Is that called "hopping?"

The way that I do it, well, you can call it hopping! :-D

Where do one legged girls work? Answer, IHOP

And I'm French to boot! LMAOROTF! :-D

so what are the differences by being French? you know, the "to boot" part?

I don't know!

either way, great answer. The French part did get my attention though. Maybe it was a French Boot!

Since you were on the subject of hopping, no one knows hopping better than the French, after all, they are all a bunch of ribbit, ribbits! :-D

Then I must be French too, LOL

You and me both? Hurray! :-D

Oh, but I understand so well, my friend! Don't stand too close to me as I might trip you while doing these jumping jacks! And speak louder so I don't have to stand so close, okay? Don't you mean that we are both on the same leg, and not page? Are you doing these jumping jacks properly? Because I am doing them the way that you're doing them, right? Or left? :-D

I briefly dated a guy who would skip with me. We thought it was hilarious. I'm surprised we weren't put in straight jackets. But it's actually great exercise, as are jumping jacks! Great idea...if I could only do them now. I'd love to see the video of you doing them.

Not nearly as much as a video of me doing them!

Are you sure that you're doing them correctly, lbenmaor and greaterexp ? :-D

I'm sure your pretty hair will help you look like you know what you're doing.

If I need pretty hair to do anything, I'm in big trouble.

Good for you! I am lucky to walk let alone jump!

You're blessed that you can walk.

ha, my timing if off, and the vertigo has me bouncing off walls. I could hurt myself

Not a good idea to try it.

true

Oh, any excuse πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

yep

Don't you have the bubble suit that jimeka provided you with? :-D

never got one, I think. I have padded walls so I could try, when I feel safe

Don’t forget to do it on a rubber floor, so you can get extra bounce in your step! :-D

good idea!

Ibenmaor Jumping Jacks? I have never, ever been able to do these because I couldn't coordinate the movements. Arms alone, yes. Legs alone, sort of. Arms and legs together, nah, no way. In high school, my PE teacher made fun of me, mocking my lack of coordination. Now I wonder if I was just naturally a klutz or if MS nerve damage was beginning.

I understand but you can continue with your arms.

Have a nice weekend goatgal.

it could have been the ms, you just hadn't been dx yet

Great exchange there guys! U r all bat sh@t crazy aren’t you?!

I think u have to be to survive the nonsense of MS! The jumping jacks idea is ace - even if some of us only manage by hanging on to the sofa!

Getting hearts pumping does get the white blood cells moving - which is very good for us whichever way you look at it, or do it!

Thanks for cheering me up! Have a goodun everyone βœ¨πŸ˜‚β€οΈπŸŒˆπŸ§œβ€β™€οΈβ€οΈβœ¨

enjoy

Thank you for encouraging us.

Leslie

I would love to do them but my feet don’t listen to me anymore. It’s a no go from me but you keep on doing them do a couple for me.
