Health Benefits Of Latin Dance Classes

Health Benefits Of Latin Dance Classes

Physicians recommend that both adults and children receive at least 150 minutes of physical exercise every week. Why spend this time in boring activities when you could spend it doing something you really enjoy? Taking Latin dance classes is one way to learn new moves that will also increase your heart rate.
The movements
Salsa or Latin style dancing involves three different weight changes or steps, performed to each four-beat measure. Even if a step does not occur, you might kick or tap to the beat. Various interchanges might involve slight modifications from standard steps, depending on specific instructors. Dancers will need to maintain strong upper bodies to perform the steps correctly. Hips often move energetically to perform the steps, while arms remain in an open position. Steps involve turning, twirling, and moving in unison with a partner across the floor. When dancing solo, arms won’t move as much as when working with a partner.


Your morning exercise routine

Your morning exercise routine

Morning time is definitely the best time of the day for a busy person’s workout. All you need to do is make proper planning of your exercise routine and stick to it. The key is getting exercise whenever you can, whether it’s morning, afternoon, or evening, but by starting your morning with physical activity, you set the day’s pace. You get your exercise in before other distractions can intrude.

Training in the morning is way more affective for burning calories and fat then you think. When you exercise early in the morning, it jump starts your metabolism and keeps it elevated for hours, sometimes up to 24 hours! That means you’re burning more calories all day long just because you exercised in the morning!

Caroline Wozniacki’s workout

As of 11 October 2010 (2010 -10-11)], Caroline Wozniacki is ranked World No. 1 on the WTA Tour. She has won twelve WTA singles titles and was the runner-up at the 2009 US Open. Despite losing out at the French Open, Denmark’s tennis belle, 20-year-old Caroline, happily chats to us about her introduction to the sport and the motivation behind every serve.

– ‘I started playing tennis around the age of seven. My father, who was a professional soccer player, introduced me and my brother Patrik to the sport. I remember we’d always play against each other from very early on and I hated it when I lost. I was pretty determined to beat him and get revenge. I started spending more and more time on the tennis court, trying to get better and managed to beat my Dad and Patrik. The first time I beat my Dad it felt great.’
