um, 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."
