5 Day Dancer Fit Challenge: Day 3

Over the last couple of days we started conditioning our abs and lifting our booty, which done consistently will chisel your body like a dancer... but you might be wondering how do ditch the wobbly bits so we can show off that lovely toned figure as well?
If you’re anything like me this story might sound familiar; you decide to get in shape, promising to spin every day or hit bootcamp or the treadmill and drink your meals until you hit your goals (ugh!). You quickly realized that this was an unrealistic and unhealthy pipe dream, and now your fitness goals remain a distant dream as your exercise routine has already begun to lag.
You need new motivation. A cardio blast workout you'll actually maintain because it's so fun, you'll WANT to work out.
Today I’m going to show you how to blast fat and melt muffin top with easy peasy dance cardio - now if you’re not a dancer, or can’t jump up and down, or flat out hate cardio don’t stress. I’m going to help you learn the moves slowly with low impact options for all abilities. Forget about the calorie counting and just dance it out with me - and if it all goes wrong, wave your hands in the air like you just don’t care for 10 minutes!
So by now we’ve hit our deep core muscles, we’ve starting lifting our glutes and today we’re discovering how much FUN cardio can be when you do something that’s not all about going for a long or as far as possible.
My top tip for today:
NO-ONE gets all the moves the first time around (unless they’re a pro..) so let go of needing to be perfect, or great at something the first time around. Your brain is like a muscle and you wouldn’t expect to see results after just one workout would you? It takes about 4-6 sessions to see improvements in memory and coordination so today’s task is to simply cross off that first workout - you don’t have to nail the all the steps.
(Our dance cardio workouts are normally 20-30 minutes long, so if you want to you can repeat this dance off 2 or 3 times through to get a longer workout, or you can do the core workout, glutes workout and the dance workout from Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.)
Just like that you’ve burnt a heck lot of calories and gotten one step closer to that dancer-bod while having the time of your life!
This stuff works!
