Zumba features Interval Training
The American Council on Exercise states that thighs can be slimmed by interval training during cardio workouts. Interval training involves periods of intense, energetic & fast-paced movements followed by an “interval” of fewer powerful movements to allow your body to recover. Zumba can move between moments of intense movements and moments of slow, relaxed workouts. This allows you to burn thigh – fat while giving your body short breaks to regain momentum and pick up pace again as opposed to nonstop high paced action. If you work out vigorously in a continuous form, you will eventually work out LESS and tire easily and will probably even get cramps all over your body. You will wear your body and mind. Interval training gives your mind the illusion that you have not worked out a lot as you feel somewhat peaceful and relaxed. This facilitates a longer work out.
…Zumba is a great choice of work out if your goal is slimming down and toning up your thighs. The combination of reducing body fat and increasing muscular strength will slim your thigh area and all parts of the body while you move. Zumba can also improve your flexibility, balance, posture, reduce your stress and increase your self-esteem, while enhancing your overall health and fitness level.
