Do 100 fly jacks to lose weight and get a well-shaped back and upper body

Health, according to the World Health Organization, is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”.[1] A variety of definitions have been used for different purposes over time. Health can be promoted by encouraging healthful activities, such as regular physical exercise and adequate sleep,[2] and by reducing or avoiding unhealthful activities or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress. Some factors affecting health are due to individual choices, such as whether to engage in a high-risk behavior, while others are due to structural causes, such as whether the society is arranged in a way that makes it easier or harder for people to get necessary healthcare services. Still other factors are beyond both individual and group choices, such as genetic disorders.

Fly jack is a 3-step move that can tone your upper body within no time. The best part is that you are not going to miss those dreadful push-ups again.

If you also think that exercises that make your muscles cry out loud are the ones that make the cut, it’s time to break this myth. Here’s the truth — it is not the exercise, but its intensity that defines the calorie burn. In the HIIT universe, there is no dearth of exercises; there’s something for everyone. In fact, if you belong to the “I hate burpees and push-ups” brigade, HIIT has one move in store for you that might come in handy. And that move is – fly jacks.

Fly jack is a variation of jumping jacks. This means that your lower body moves along similar lines, but your upper body has to level up with its moves. Simple? Indeed!

Come let’s dive in and know how fly jacks are here to help you with your weight loss resolution.

3 simple steps to ace fly jacks

Your legs will move just like they do in jumping jacks. It’s the hand movement that will be different. So, come and learn.

Step 1: Stand straight with your feet together. Open up your hands in a lateral position, making a straight line with your shoulders.

Step 2: With a jump, open your legs and bring your hands in front, making your palms clap.

Step 3: Jump again and close your legs. Bring back your hands straight with the shoulder.

Now, repeat.

Pressure points

A simple exercise like fly jacks actually has the capacity to reap the best results, but only when you do it right. Here are some points to remember, while performing it:

  1. Keep your body tight

    You need to keep your arms, legs, glutes, back, chest, and core tight. This will help to power your muscles. More tightness will lead to better sculpting of the muscles, and faster weight loss.

  2. Observe your form

    If you follow the above rule, there are very few chances of you losing your form. But at times when you speed up, you also tend to lose your form. This leads to a fall, which can sprain your leg/ankle. Or you may not get effective results.

  3. Go for a full range of motion

    Doing anything half-heartedly will give you that kind of result. And we don’t want that right? So make sure that your legs and arms are not bent at any point in time. Also, when you bring your arms in front, ensure that they are straight and while moving them back and forth, you put some extra pressure to awaken your chest and upper back muscles.

Why are fly jacks as good as push-ups?

We know you literally hate doing push-ups, especially those of you who squeal and shout to reach the 100-mark. Now that means you need an alternative that can be simple but has a similar effect. You know why we are singing sweet songs for fly jacks.

Fly jacks literally target every muscle in your chest and upper back. So, it won’t be wrong to call it a compound exercise. Another thing is that due to its front and back movement it also helps you reduce that stubborn armpit fat, which push-ups also promise to do.

But here is the catch which makes fly jacks even better than push-ups and i.e. they also work on your sides, glutes, and legs. In push-ups, these muscles are targeted in a very minor way, but with fly jacks, they fall under the major muscle target group due to the movement of your feet.

So it won’t be entirely wrong to call dibs on fly jacks.

Gals! Unfortunately, it looks like another lockdown might hit us soon. So, neither can you go to a gym nor outdoors. And we won’t let your new year’s resolution go in vain. That’s why we recommend you to give fly jacks a shot, and give your transformation an easier way out.
