I imagine everyone who knows me expects this one to be about Dancing With the People You May Have Heard of Once or as more commonly known, Dancing With the Stars. They would be wrong. I do enough talking about that every Monday and Tuesday night. This will be about dancing.
Is there a better full body workout than dancing?
I mean all out, full blown, gettin' down with yer jiggy self, legs up and down, arms up and moving, hips gyrating dancing. The kind where your heart pounds, your legs ache, your arms nearly throb and your feet are begging you to sit your butt down for 10 minutes. That kind of dancing. Every major muscle is used and abused. The best part? It's fun and will make you laugh while you work away your caloric intake and build muscle tone.
Core strength is vital to aging bodies maintaining the ability to stand tall, lift moderately heavy objects and stay healthy as well as mobile. As the human body ages, it loses strength quickly and without some kind of workout regime, it soon loses it's ability to do the simplest things in day to day life. The easiest and most beneficial exercise is walking. Once walking is relatively effortless, a little light dancing is the next step. When the dancing is easier and can be done longer, adding a few more moves until that all out dance is just 10 minutes a day and as routine as your morning coffee, coke, milk, tea or whatever you might like to start your morning. It will become addictive.
That is the key. Movement every day and routine. In thirty days whatever you are making yourself do will become routine. So why not give a month to dance? Give a dance for good body tone and good core strength.
I think I have talked myself into this one. Dang, I'm good at this!
