Running Group Half Marathon
There are 5 groups in this world when it comes exercise:

1. I don’t know what exercise is.
2. I heard of exercise and I’m considering it.
3. I know exercise is important and will get more serious soon.
4. I exercise frequently but sometimes family and work get in the way.
5. I exercise often and make it a regular routine.

It ranges from “I don’t care” to “I live and breathe exercise” which is a big range but anything in life you need to acknowledge the purpose of exercise and the benefits. If you are starting at level I or level III, you have or had to build your way up gradually in moderation. Certainly there are the gifted ones with talents but they are outnumbered.

Which one are you? It’s never too late. It’s better to be last place than to never start.

Here’s how I usually get motivated. Read the Post How to Motivate Yourself to Exercise?

Inspired by the Rolling Stones. If you don’t feel like getting off your butt for a quick workout, this will! The song Jumpin’ Jack Flash makes you feel involved, energized and pumped! That’s how I interpreted the lyrics “It’s a gas! Gas! Gas!” = Go go go! Let’s do this!

I believe jumping jacks are as effective if not better than running or jump rope. See the small case study on how I concluded this.

I’ve compiled a series of different jumping jacks which also incorporates dynamic shoulder, core, hips, gluts and leg movements. The exercise will boost your heart rate, stamina, stability and strengthen your quads and calves. Jumping jacks are a good warmup but can also be good as a workout. Stretching is important because after working out your muscles fatigue and tighten up. Its always a good practice to stretch after to “neutralize” your muscles.

Here’s a sneak peek on what you get to look forward to! Training days will be posted every other day!
