Pinsanity! Jumping Jacks for Weight Loss

Everyone knows that you can find ways to gain weight on Pinterest. All those amazing photos of food that you want to eat but know you shouldn’t. But can Pinterest help you lose weight? As I try to kick-start my own weight loss and exercise goals I’ve been spending more time in the Fitness category. Along with loads of “inspiring” photos of ultra thin women in bikinis, there are some fun workout ideas, healthy eating tips and other helpful things to be found. I happened upon this pin the other day:


Now as exercises go, I’ve never minded jumping jacks. Could this be an easy way to lose a little extra weight? While I can’t verify the claim that every jumping jack burns two calories, it does seem theoretically possible that this plan could work. 100 jumping jacks seems doable. 1000? Every day? Hmm…not sure about that. So I decided to give it a shot.

About 60 jumping jacks into my first set, jumping jacks suddenly weren’t so fun anymore. By 90, I thought I might die. I struggled through to 100. My heart rate was up, I even broke a sweat. 9 more sets in one day? I don’t think so.

If you know someone who can do 1000 jumping jacks in a single day and live to tell about it, there is your new fitness idol. It’s certainly not me. I’ll be on the “Do 100 jumping jacks a day and lose a pound in ten weeks” plan…

    When I do the math ~ that would be 7000 jumping jacks to lose one pound!! 2 jumping jacks = 1 calorie. 1000 jumping jacks = 500 calories. 500 calories x 7 (which would be 7000 jumping jacks) = 3500 calories. Which would equal 1 pound!!!

    Actually the picture does say 7000 (just a funny font).

    Good luck!

    You should drink 5-6 liters of water daily to maintain
    your system clean and healthy. If you understand why for you to do something, figuring out how you can do
    it’ll become much easier.

    I found this same photo on Pintrest a few days ago! I decided to try this out. Today is my first day. I’ve found that doing approximately 85 jumping jacks every hour over the course of 12 hours will equal a little over 1000 jumping jacks.
    Also, according to the photo, 1000 jumping jacks equals about 500 calories burned (so over the course of seven days, 3500 calories will be burned (equaling one pound)).
    I’m not sure if this will be effective, since every body burns calories at a different rate (depending on age, height, weight, etc.), but we’ll see! I’m going to keep it up for a few weeks and see what happens, while also maintaining a healthy diet :)

      (Electronics) Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program () This aeadtpr pairs fine with my iPhone, Droid, iPad, and HP Touchpad. (Edit 1 year later: I have also used it with a Galaxy Nexus phone and a computer with a USB bluetooth aeadtpr). I have it connected to my with my and the sound is good. Some devices sound better than others but it is not the fault of this product. The range is good too, but keep in mind that the ranges are half determined by the device on the other end of the bluetooth connection.After you pair each of your devices that first time (using the button on the aeadtpr), then all you need to do is connect to it from whichever device you want to play audio from (it does not require you to have to go press the button on the aeadtpr again, at least not with my devices). You cannot play from more than one device at the same time you just have to make sure the previous device is disconnected before you try to connect a new one. So, for example, here’s a typical switch device routine:1. I hit connect (to logitech aeadtpr) in bluetooth settings on my android phone and I play music from the phone.2. If I want to start playing from another device instead, I hit disconnect (from logitech aeadtpr) on my phone.3. Then I go to connect (to logitech aeadtpr) on my Touchpad and start playing music.The previous device will not auto-disconnect itself when you go to try and connect a new one it will simply not connect. But the good part is that you don’t have to go press the button on the aeadtpr manually. Everything as far as connecting and reconnecting is done from your devices.Overall, this is a great aeadtpr, especially at a price under $40.

    Now, if you want to have control over the exercises that you do and want to
    pace your own exercise regimen, below are the
    essentials that will help you plan your own exercises in building six pack abs:.
    What I recommend, is testing yourself to determine how many pushups you can do in one
    set. But with a customized exhaust system, the
    truck will dispel the burnt gases more efficiently
    and therefore increase HP and torque numbers effortlessly.
    Nitric Oxide also decreases the recovery
