National Jump Out! Day

National Jump Out Day is an American holiday dedicated to jumping. This simple exercise perfectly strengthens the cardiovascular system and acts as a prevention of early problems with the musculoskeletal system. It is celebrated annually on March 20.


There is no reliable information about the creation of National Jump Out Day. There is a theory that it was established by the artist T. Lauschmann, who was concerned about the problem of a constantly rising ambient temperature. He suggested that all people jump up at the same time to speed up the rotation of the earth. This, of course, is not serious, since even all the people put together cannot have any effect on the planet.

Nevertheless, we dedicate March 20 to jumping and enjoying it. There are many options: jump rope, do exercises to develop movement in boxing, high jump, practice long jump, pole vaulting, and more. Everyone is sure to find the best option for themselves.

Interesting facts

  • Jumping – a great exercise for cardio, which will run all the processes in the body, help to cheer up, as well as burn extra calories.
