Heeeeey! You guys, I’m both thrilled and frightened that it’s Friday. Somehow I went from being all caught up in my work to being way behind in the matter of about three days so I’ve been scrambling all week to get back to caught up before all my classes start up over the next two weeks. Fingers crossed that I get enough done this weekend that I can take Monday (which is Labour Day here in Canada) off!
I decided it was time to share a new Dance Toning (aka Zumba Toning 😉 ) routine. I haven’t been choreographing any new ones this summer since I don’t teach that format June-August, but with my classes starting the week of the 14th it was time to get back to work!
Because I was really digging Rompe la Pompa on ZIN 58 and I felt like it had a Zumba Toning-esque about it that’s what I used!
This routine is mainly a lower body and core focus with a little bit of upper back action in there. When the base moves at the beginning move up to tempo make sure you reduce your range of motion in order to keep the movement safe. And of course keep your legs wide enough apart that when you go into the lateral lunges you are keeping your knee in line with your ankle and really sit back into the lunge as both will protect your knee.
And I feel like I should get some bonus points for this awkward facial expression in the thumbnail, haha. There was some more “normal” frames I could have used, but what’s the fun in being normal anyway. 😉
Have fun and let me know how it goes if you try it!
