Seal Jacks Exercise

Benefits:

  • Add variety to Jumping Jacks.
  • Challenge muscles in a different plane of motion (sagittal).
  • Have a cardio, fat-burning effect.
  • Tone shoulders, abs, thighs, and calves in one move.

How to do Seal Jacks:

Starting Position: Stand with your feet together, hands palm to palm, arms extended out in front of your chest.

Movement: Step or jump your feet out to a wide stance — palms separating, arms opening to a ‘T’.

Return: Step or jump your feet together. Clap your hands by bringing arms back together. Increase the pace as your rhythm improves.

Modification and Progression:

  • To simplify Seal Jacks, step one foot out, then the other. Place your hands on your hips.
  • To advance Seal Jacks, do a standard Jumping Jack after every Seal Jack to challenge your brain and muscles.

Movement Tips:

  • Be mindful of your ankles as you step out.
  • Do Prone IYT’s to improve your ability to perform this exercise.
  • Keep your chest open and core braced.
