When exercises in the gym seem monotonous, the mere sight of dumbbells makes you melancholy, but you still want to lose weight, … dancing will come to the rescue. No, not in a nightclub hugging a cocktail, but in a fitness club - the choice of dance workouts is rich today. BeautyHack is about options that will cheer you up and help you lose weight.
Proven - it is simply impossible to leave a dance training called Zumba in a bad mood. Extraordinary movements to the fiery Latin American rhythms not only energize the whole day, but also help to work out almost all muscle groups. Most importantly, dance does not require flexibility or years of experience in ballet school: coordination and a sense of rhythm are all you need.
Zumba appeared in the early 2000s - the training was invented by a choreographer from Colombia. That is why the movements are very similar to Latin American dances: there are elements from both samba and salsa, and even from Cuban mambo. The coach teaches you several movements that are repeated in bundles - you will not be bored.
And the main plus - in an hour of training, you can throw off up to 500 calories, which is equal to an average portion of fries.
In Russia, the trend for oriental dances appeared after the release of the series "Clone" and is still not losing ground. Try it, even if you don't know who Zhadi is - during the class, those muscles are worked out, the existence of which you did not know before.
Yes, among oriental dancers there are many owners of magnificent forms, but this is more a tribute to tradition than the result of exercises. The more noticeable the volume of the body, the more effective the movement. But if you are not applying for the title of Dancer of the Year, but just want to burn calories and develop plasticity, belly dancing is for you. It is he who allows you to work out the deep muscles of the abdomen, back and pelvis, which usually cannot be used by any simulator. In addition, regular oriental dance classes help prevent some female diseases and strengthen the cardiovascular system.
About 400 calories are burned in an hour of class, which is equivalent to a piece of biscuit cake.
Do not rush to throw off your sweatpants - strip plastic has nothing to do with striptease, although it also requires a certain liberation (not to be confused with vulgarity). Who are these lessons shown to? Those who feel very constrained in the presence of strangers and those who seek to lose weight, of course.
Get inspired by the clips of The Pussycat Dolls (how their ex-vocalist trains, find out here) and get ready to master the elements of ballet and Latin American dance, as well as sign up for stretching.
Strip plastic uses the maximum amount of muscles and not only helps to lose weight quickly, but also improves posture. Like any other exercise, strip dance has contraindications - if you have problems with the musculoskeletal system and, in particular, with the knees, consult your doctor before class. Otherwise, get knee pads and comfortable heels and go to the body of your dreams.
You can burn over 500 calories in an hour - that is, an average serving of fried wings.
For those who are not looking for easy ways, we advise you to try Barre - a very fashionable direction with elements of ballet and cardio training. Now everyone can feel a little like Natalie Portman in "Black Swan" and practice at the barn - especially since the ballerina's body will eventually come in a set.
Barre is not a new type of activity, it existed back in the 60s, but, of course, the real ballerina Lotte Burke invented them (we wrote about one of the clubs equipped with machines here). You do not have to dress up in a tutu and work out complex ligaments - everything is based on simple "pas" and exercises, which are incredibly difficult to repeat. During barre, every muscle in the body is pumped, and calories are burned just as quickly as with regular cardio.
You can lose over 400 calories in an hour - and that's, by the way, a whole burger.
This type of dance training is for the most progressive and young at heart. The movements in hip-hop seem to be too harsh and rough, but in fact they improve plastic as well as exercising at the machine. The dance can be safely classified as a cardio workout: blood circulation is enhanced, the cardiovascular system is strengthened, and the playlist is replenished with new hits by Kanye West and Drake (seriously, hip-hop dancers always have great musical taste).
Get ready for the fact that your knees will have a hard time - there are many jumps, sudden falls and coups in the dance.
But you can burn up to 600 calories, which is equivalent to four slices of cheese pizza.
