How to Cross-Jacks

Exercise Families: Cardio

Equipment: Bodyweight

Trainer: Ashley Steele


  1. Stand with your feet outside the shoulders with your arms by your sides. Raise both arms laterally in the air so they are parallel to the floor, elbows extended.

  2. Hop vertically and simultaneously cross your feet and arms over each other. Land softly with your knees slightly bent and rapidly reverse the movement.

  3. Spring in the air, spread both feet apart while extending at the shoulder as you swing your arms behind you. Land in a wide stance with your feet outside the shoulders and continue the dynamic movement at a fast pace for the specified amount of time or repetitions.

  4. Cross-Jacks are a low-impact functional movement with less joint-stress compared to most plyometrics. This exercise is great for burning calories, elevating your heart rate, improving conditioning, and overall fitness.
