Line Dancing & Me

Thursday, March 19, 2015

I want to make my workouts a large variety. As we move into the summer months, I plan on increasing more activities into my workout program. I understand that if I keep doing the same thing, I will become complacent and possibly lose interest. This week has been great. Between walking the treadmill to line dancing. I have had fun but unfortunately, it may not be enough.

Line dancing is a great activity to do if you want to dance, meet people and just enjoy yourself. However, when you first go, it's the learning curve that throws your workout into a lull. Most of the time is spent learning the steps and by time you learn those steps, you will be learning the steps for the next dance.

Now I'm not saying don't do it. I'm saying just don't rely on line dancing to burn calories unless it's at an intensity level that causes you to increase your heart rate. Get out there and get moving!

    Jeanadoll77: That's great and I believe that once I get the steps down, I will enjoy it or change to another class with more intensity.... emoticon

    I teach line dancing to my friends in a garage. We make a work-out of the line dances by stringing them all together, one right after the other. We repeat the same dances from week to week and every now and then I teach a new one or change the music.
    I am vacationing in Florida and plan to go to a local bar tomorrow night for a lesson!
