Whether you’re a beginner or a very experienced athlete, you should know the benefits of working out. However, not many people know how to make effort to combine some exercises to get the maximum results. You’ll see why Zumba dance fits in perfectly there. Still, you need to learn by yourself how to make a unique blend of exercises that both fit your body type and that could provide the best results. Some of those include how to combine dancing and workout.

The best exercises for maximum results

First of all, we need to distinguish whether you’re here to lose weight, gain muscle, or both. Every exercise varies upon that. Additionally, you need to know your body type to be able to find exercises that work perfectly for you. That’s where the best personal trainers in Dubai come to the scene.

Dancing in the gym
Make sure you consult with your coach on how to start these exercises.

You’re probably just wondering what are exercises that give you the best results. Well, these are good because they are suitable for any body type. Here they are:

  • Squats – These are great if you both want to lose weight and gain some muscle. Thanks to the weight you put on your shoulders when doing squats, you can see how efficiency works.
  • Deadlifts – when it comes to deadlifting, bear in mind you should start really slow with this one. Make sure you do this with your coach and then gradually put more weight.
  • Pull-ups – Another great exercise to build your muscles on your back and shoulders. These are great because they build not only muscle but form. You will be in great shape thanks to this.
  • Accessory lifts – You could do this exercise by lying on the bench and then slowly lifting weights over your head. It’s a great exercise for your arms and will be a great way to get in shape. Combine that with a kettlebell workout and you will get amazing results.

There are different exercises you can combine for the best results. You probably didn’t know this but abs workouts are highly recommended. That’s because you will not only have killer abs but also a good spine posture. Abs actually hold your spine in place and make sure you walk straight.

Benefits of dancing as an exercise

Dancing is probably still underrated. When it comes to using dance to lose weight, you will definitely be on the right track. Thanks to dancing, the capacity of your lings will enlarge, and your heart will get healthier. Also, you can put it into your workout routine to get the maximum results.

So, here are some of the health benefits of dancing:

  1. Reduced risk of bone diseases
  2. Increased muscular strength
  3. Better shape
  4. Improved balance as well as spacial awareness
  5. Weight loss

Many people miss out on this opportunity because it doesn’t seem efficient enough. However, that’s a mistake! Dancing has not only health benefits but also brings out your competitive side as well as creativity. There are plenty of different places you could go to that have great dancing programs for beginners. And don’ be embarrassed because that’s a pretty interesting thing.

As you can conclude, there are many positive sides if you combine dancing and workout. If you want to get the maximum results, you will do everything you can to get in the shape of your life. To be honest, dancing is not just for special occasions. You should seize any opportunity you can to start doing it. Moreover, it will have positive effects on your self-esteem. So, here are the types of dances you can include in your daily routine:

  • Hip-hop
  • Belly dancing
  • Zumba
  • Dance Aerobics
  • Latin Dance

Besides, you can make your own program that will perfectly combine dancing and workout. For instance, you could do your workout session in the gym first and then join in on some dance program if there is one in your gym. If not, you could plan on going to the gym, let’s say, three times a week, and then the other two days use for various dance programs.
