OMG.. what a workout (Salsa Dancing)
Thursday, October 28, 2010
So my husband Larry and I are on a Salsa Performance Team, and we really enjoy doing it together, and as you can imagine it's a great and fun way to burn off those calories...
WELL LAST NIGHT THEY WORKED US!! It was basically non-stop, we kept practicing and re-practicing the portion of the choreography we had just learned and it was so fast paced!!
I looked up at my husband and he was def breaking a sweat, after I thought the sweat beads I was producing was an illusion. I wore my heart rate monitor and found that :
* In 55 min and 20 sec I had burned 411 calories
* My average heart rate was at 137/ and my max was at 186
* and that I had so much fun dancing that I didn't even notice just how much calories I burned!!
At the end of class, I realized that I had one fantastic work out, and Loved every min of it... I was pretty tired afterward and slept like a baby that night, but I love that I was able to do something I love, while also reaping the benefits towards my weight loss goals!! :D
Have a great day everyone!!
