Wednesday Workout: More Zumba

Dancing is one of my favorite activities.  You want me to clean.  Pump the music and cleaning/dancing will happen.  You want me to fold laundry, ditto.  Dancing is an awesome form of exercise and mood enhancement.  

One of my off the beaten track movie favs is "Marilyn Hotchkiss' Ballroom Dancing and Charm School".  (long name = quirky film)  The film follows a grieving widower through a transformation brought on by attending a dance lesson.

Miss Hotchkiss teaches, "Dance is a very powerful drug Mr. Keane. If embraced judiciously, it can exorcise demons, access deep seated emotions and color your life in joyous shades of brilliant magenta that you never knew existed. But, one must shoulder its challenges with intrepid countenance if one is ever to reap its rewards."

Dance can change lives.  So dance a little.  Here are a few more routines from our Zumba Class.

So Fine focuses on your Quads and Abs.  Be sure to use your stomach muscles not your back when you pop.  Emphasizing  rotation of the hips intensifies the work in the quads.

Zoomer brings African flair to the dance party.  This dance will pump up the cardio.

I hope Perfect will inspire you as you stretch your muscles.  Never let anyone tell you you are not enough.
