How to Lose 15 Pounds in 2 Weeks – 3 Tips to Help Kick That Fat Away

  • Karli Woodbury

    It does recommend a thousand jumping jacks per day. It says 10 sets of 100 jumping jacks. 10x100=1000

  • Liz Barker Glenn

    Yep, 1000 PER DAY. You can see the difference in font between the 1, 10, and 100s vs. 7000. The linked article actually suggests doing 3 sets of 100/day which would be 2,100 JJs/week. If 2 cals/JJ were true, and you did 300 JJs/day for 7 days, you'd only burn 1050 calories or 30% of the 3500 that reportedly constitutes a pound. Not too shabby for 300 a day, and slightly more manageable than 100/day. Not that I'll be doing the same activity every day anyway... :)

    *more manageable than 1000/day.

  • Liz Barker Glenn

    **2 jacks/calorie. Darn tiny editing window! 300 jacks/day for 7 days would conceivably burn 30% of the 3500 calories/pound. Done!

  • Jewel House

    What you want to find out the amount of calories you burn by doing jumping jacks take the amount you did and divide it divide it by 2 so if you did a thousand jumping jacks you would only burn 500 calories. You need to do 7000 jumping jacks burn a pound
