Jumping jacks are a form of aerobics called plyometrics, which is commonly referred to as jump training. This type of training not only builds cardiovascular strength, but also muscular response for speed of movement,

Every time your feet hit the ground while performing jumping jacks, the quadriceps muscles shorten, which is followed by a rapid stretch when you make the next jump. This is called the stretch-shortening cycle, which will help you increase speed of movement, improve your power production, strengthen bones and help with weight loss.
