Do you like the song “Latch”? Would you like to get a cardio and toning workout while dancing? The workout videos I made for this post will give you that cardio and toning workout while dancing to “Latch” by Disclosure featuring Sam Smith!
“Latch” the Song
When I first heard this song, I just knew I’d have to make a dance workout to it! The song works great because it has slower sections as well as more upbeat, quicker sections, which makes for a great workout. It’s a variation on interval training.
I’ve choreographed this routine to be one of my most difficult yet as far as the steps and movements go. You can do the breakdown more often to be able do the exact same steps I do, or you could choose sections of the routine to do and repeat more often.
The main thing is to keep moving! You don’t have to perform each step perfectly. I know you’re doing great! Plus, you will get better every time you go through the workout.
The breakdown is made for you to go through as many times as you need. You may want to go through it before you do the full workout each time. You may want to do it one to three times and just do the full workout otherwise. Remember, it is for you and what you need specifically. Use it to suit your needs best!
Keep your core activated throughout the routine by lengthening your body and drawing your belly button into your spine. You shouldn’t feel the moves or routine in your lower back. If you do find you feel it in your lower back, activate your abdominals and glutes even more.
Do a warmup before this workout and a cool-down after. You may also choose to do the breakdown a couple of times as you warm up.
Here are some ideas for you to use this workout (times are approximate):
15-Minute Workout – Do the breakdown 1x and full workout 1x. This would be slightly longer when cooling down.
30 -Minute Workout – Do the breakdown 2x and full workout 2x.
45-Minute Workout – Do the breakdown 2x and full workout 2x. Repeat breakdown and full workout alternating each 1x. Follow with approximately 5-minute cool-down.
Try to enjoy the challenge of this workout and feel the music as you dance!
