Get toned by dancing
Dance workouts are popular because they add fun and energy to your day-you’ll almost forget you’re burning major calories. Put on your favourite fast-paced music and get your heart rate going with these dance-inspired cardio bursts (some of which truly are blasts from the past). As always, check with your doctor before starting a workout plan.
Of course, ideally everyone should get 30 minutes of fitness a day. But when time is tight, doing one of our 10-Minute Tuneups whenever you can fit it in will make a difference.
To get the most aerobic benefit from this workout, do as many of each exercise as you can, as fast as you can. You can modify the workout to your own fitness level by going with the lower-impact Easier Options until you have built up your aerobic stamina (but try to do at least one Hip-Hop Four-Point Jumping Jack). If you do the Easier Option moves, gradually increase the number of times you try the tougher moves until you are no longer doing the easier option. Have fun!
Warm-up: 1 minute: Dance to your favourite tune. Or simply march briskly in place while swinging arms to shoulder height.
