Woohoo! I finally mastered the stability ball! I beat the HECK out of it! Laughing.....
I took the "Drums Alive" class at the Y this morning......& what a riot! It was absolutely FUN-FUN-FUN! It's primarily an aerobics class w/a twist! It's billed as "traditional aerobic movements with the powerful beat & rhythm of the drums". It's a one hour workout for "the entire body, mind & spirit"! What we do is set up a "base" using stacking square racks which are open in the center...then we put our stability ball in the opening to keep it in place. They we take drumsticks (yes, real drumsticks) & "play" our stability ball...drumming to music & the aerobic movements called out by an instructor! Um, she was more like a drill sergeant! Laughing........but in a NICE way! Smiling....
All the ladies in the class helped me set up cause I had NO clue! You position yourself with a ball on all sides of you......so you can play ALL of them during the workout! It was an hour of constant movement, jumping, shouting, reaching, punching, & SWEATING! Oh my goodness.......I mean S-W-E-A-T-I-N-G!!!!
It was one strenuous WORKOUT! I mean INTENSE!
And I LOVED every minute of it!
If you ever get a chance to take a class....do it! It's easy to follow along & you will get an AWESOME workout! I, for one, will be taking this class again for sure!
EnJOY the day my friends! Happy Friday to you all! And have a FABULOUS holiday weekend! Make healthy choices & be safe!
