I’ve choreographed this routine to have easier steps so that you can really get into the music and get a great cardio workout. You can have fun portraying the character of the song and putting expression and different arm movements into the workout if you like. You can even picture in your mind what you’d like to “shake off” while doing your routine. This can help you get into the routine even more and work through difficult emotions. Or, you can just have fun while you dance to this energetic song!
Just Keep Moving
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!
This is a full-body cardio and toning workout. Keep your core engaged to get the most benefit for your abs and to protect your body. Activate your core 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):
10-Minute Workout – Do the breakdown 1x and full workout 1x. This would be slightly longer when cooling down.
20 -Minute Workout – Do the breakdown 2x and full workout 2x.
40-Minute Workout – Do the breakdown 2x and full workout 2x. Repeat breakdown and full workout alternating each 2x. Follow with approximately 5-minute cool-down.
Once you’re comfortable with this workout, remember that you burn the most calories according to the intensity you put into the workout. Have fun, and burn those calories! 🙂
