An image of the state flag of Missouri

Who knew states even HAD official exercises???

According to AP News, Missouri’s official state exercise is…the jumping jack!

Gov. Jay Nixon recently signed legislation that added the classic exercise to a list of more than two dozen official symbols.

Umm…why?

Students of Pershing Elementary School in St. Joseph lobbied for jumping jacks to be the official state exercise as a way to honor Gen. John J. Pershing.

Who was General Pershing? He was a Missouri native that not only led U.S. forces during World War I, but he’s actually the man credited with inventing the jumping jack in the first place, which he used as a training drill for the West Point cadets he taught in the late 1800s.

The new measure will become state law on August 28.
