What muscles are used during jumping jacks?


Answer by  Dylan (67)

Jumping Jacks are excellent because they work the majority of muscles on your body. Problem is, if your already in shape you'd have to do quite a bit of them to actually get a workout while doing them. The muscles used are your glutes (legs), calves, upper deltoids, back, and most importantly your heart- cardio fitness!

Jumping jacks are a great excersice for getting warmed up because it hits so many muscles. You calves, thighs, hip flexers, abs to a certain extent. Your lower back muscles will get used a little. You latisimus dorsi (back muscles) from the arm movement. Your shoulders and delts will get a workout as well. Great way to start a workout.
