If you’ve been trying for months to lose those extra pounds and those love handles are no longer showing you any love…
If you’re tired of the high gym memberships, the constant travel, the packing and unpacking of your gym bag and the unsanitary change rooms you have to visit in order to attend an expensive gym just to sweat your money away rather than those extra pounds than you’ll be interested in what I am about to share with you.
I’m sure you’re just plain tired of the demand, inconveniences and repetitiveness of most exercise programs. That is why you should definitely consider salsa dancing as a way to lose those extra pounds but at the same time have fun while doing it.
Salsa dancing is one of the best ways to enjoy yourself while also getting in shape. It works various body parts and is an excellent cardio workout exercise that burns fat while lightly toning the body without the rigorous and strenuous movement of most exercise programs.
One session of salsa dancing can leave you feeling revived but also lifts your spirits giving you a confidence for dance that you never knew you had.
Most salsa dancers have fabulous physiques because the muscles worked in salsa dancing can add new form and definition to your body.
Here are the particular muscle groups worked during a casual salsa dance:
1. Calf muscles
2. Hip muscles
4. Arms – shoulder muscles and triceps
But best of all, salsa dancing is a quick moving exercise that entails endurance making it one of the best cardiovascular workout activities ever!
You can even pick up some great salsa videos online and practice at home! And when the time is right, brush up your skills on the dance floor. Even though salsa dancing is famous for dancing in pairs, you can also practice your salsa moves alone if a partner is not easily available. It’s a great way to exercise not only your body, but you mind as well because you need to have great timing when dancing. That, and memorizing moves mentally and with your body, makes for great coordination.
But don’t forget, a good workout routine also entails eating right. So, drink plenty of water, eat your greens, eat lots of healthy nuts like cashews and almonds (stay away from peanuts as these are very fattening), and don’t forget that fruits are your best friend.
