ID:	654015 Hello,

    I’m very new to exercise and I am working my was through “Baseline”. The pictures for side steps and step jacks are exactly the same. There is no video example of the side step exercise. Can some please explain the difference?

    Thanks.

    Hi moth, I'm doing baseline too and hope my description helps. A step Jack is like a jumping Jack where you stand in one spot, stick your one leg out and bring your arms up then bring your leg back in and arms down staying in one spot.
    With a side step what changes is your in motion. When you kick your right leg out, instead of bringing it back in your going to move your left leg to your right literally taking a side step. Then vice versa. The illustration shows you can still bring your arms up on the step out and then down when you complete your move to the side.
    I hope this description helps you out!

      I agree with what Kjellshocked wrote... but I have to admit that I did step jacks on that day, too. Mostly because of the picture being the same and because I just didn't register it (the downsides of working out at 5:30 in the morning and still being half asleep... ). I looked at the pictures and then did what I normally did - step jacks.

      But perhaps neilarey or Damer can clarify which exercise they had intended?

      Day 4, Day 13, Day 17, Day 19, Day 22, Day 24, Day 26, Day 30 talk about step jacks.
      Day 15, Day 21 talk about side steps, but with the picture of step jacks.

        moth thank you for asking this. Each program is put together over three months plus and several people are involved. This is an inconsistency in labelling that slipped through because the groups that tested it failed to flag it up (probably because to them it was obvious). It should be Step Jack in both cases and here's a video link on how to perform this. We will address the inconsistency in the program.
