10-Minute Tuneups: Dance workout video

Dance workouts are popular because they add an element of fun and energy to your day ‘ you’ll almost forget you’re burning major calories. Put on your favorite fast-paced music and get your heart rate going with these dance-inspired cardio blasts, some of which truly are blasts from the past. Have fun!

How it works:

Warm up: The first one-minute exercise segment will provide a brief warm-up to get your major muscles moving.
Gauge the intensity: Use a stopwatch, the timer on your phone, or a clock with a second hand to keep track of the time for each exercise. Your working muscles should feel ready to change to the next exercise by the end of each segment.
Cool down and stretch: You will do a less intense move, such as walking around the room, then stretch the major muscle groups you’ve just worked.
