the awkward mother of all exercise

um, you guys...

you guys.

the other day i said to my coworker,
"why do they call them jumping jacks?"

which inspired a google search
[as most of life's deepest questions do]

and said google search led to a discovery of the jumping jack's cousin:

the star jump

from what i can tell, the key term in this exercise's description is the word "explosive."

behold, the glory:

and, don't miss this gem:

you may notice that the first two pics are a woman, and the 3rd is clearly a man.

we pondered the significance of this:

did she fail to make a satisfactory star, in the end, and get cut from the photo shoot?

did she have an unseemly wardrobe malfunction with those red shorts?

do star jumps catalyze a cosmic explosion of some sorts that causes a gender transformation, mid-star??

whatever the case, as my coworker put it:
"something weird happened in that squat."

haha is awesome. if you ever do p-90 x you do lot of star jumps. then again doing p-90 x you just look awkward the whole time so the star jump look somewhat normal
