PLEASE READ THE RULES BELOW for the Individual – Most Star Jumps in 30 seconds Challenge

For the purpose of this record a star jump is defined as follows:

  • The starting position is standing straight with arms on the sides along the body.
  • The first movement is to jump into the air, with back straight and perpendicular to the ground, legs wide apart, arms straight out to the sides horizontal to the ground, forming a star shape in the air.
  • Upon landing, the knees must be bent with the hands touching the floor or as close as physically possible to the floor.
  • The next star jump is initiated from this crouched position, with both hands on the floor. The jump is then performed as above and is counted when the participant returns to the crouched position.
