Can I Lose Weight dancing to these Hip Hop Workouts?
So you may be asking yourself if dancing will truly help me lose weight. The answer is yes. These hip hop workouts can be considered aerobic exercise. The dance moves in these dance workouts are very explosive and full of energy. The high-intensity moves will help you burn calories no doubt. How much weight you are willing to lose is totally up to you. Thus the more you dance the more calories you will burn.
A typical dance workout session would last about 30 minutes. However, you can tailor your workout to last as long as you desire. And since you are working out from home, you could do this more than once per day on your own schedule. Dancing is an excellent way to lose weight. Not only can you listen to good music while you exercise, but also have fun dancing. What would you rather do? Walk thirty minutes on a treadmill or have fun dancing to some great tunes?
