Undoubtedly, burpees feature at the top when it comes to weight loss. Having said that, there are simpler moves in the HIIT regime that can burn calories like crazy. Jumping jacks is one such exercise that has everything to do with weight loss. But if you are super serious about losing weight, doing the regular jumping jacks are not going to give you great results. Therefore, you need something that can be as simple as jumping jacks but can burn calories like burpees.
But does such a move even exist? Surprisingly, there is and it’s not just going to burn more calories, but do a lot more!
But first let’s learn how exactly you have to do these jumping jacks. This jumping jack variation is a combination of sumo squats and jumping jacks.
Step 1: Stand straight with your legs together.
Step 2: Now, go into a jumping jack position with your feet wide apart. Make sure your hands are laterally open on the sides.
Step 3: Instead of closing back your feet, get into a deep sumo squat and while coming up, bring your feet in.
Tip: Hands must either be on your waist or close to your sides.
Repeat. That’s it!
Just ensure that you repeat the move at a fast pace to pump up your heart rate, which will ultimately increase your metabolism rate and lead to major weight loss.
If you are a beginner, you must do 25 reps of this move, take a 30-second break and start the next set. Four sets are good enough for you. All of you who are at an intermediate or advanced level can take this number to 50 to 100, take a 30-second break between each set, and do at least four sets.
Trust us! At the end of each set you will see the sweat dripping out like crazy. Try this one move for a week and notice the results.
“I hate burpees” excuse will no longer work, because you now have a better option than that.
