Salsa Dancing Burns Calories
by E Margolin
Activities using aerobic exercise include jogging, swimming, walking, biking and
cross-country skiing.

Anaerobic activity refers to activities that are short in duration and high in intensity.
Some anaerobic activities include: weight lifting, sprinting, racquetball, downhill skiing,
softball, soccer and football. Its high intensity and works the muscles quickly and
rigorously.

Aerobic refers to air or oxygen. To easily remember the difference between aerobic
and anaerobic exercise just think that since aerobic is air or oxygen, that these types
of activities should allow you to speak while performing the activity without gasping
for air. If you are gasping for air during your activity you are most likely working
anaerobically - which means faster, harder and at a higher intensity.

The continual movement of the salsa dance style steadily burns calories but also
tones the body - most specifically the legs. But not only does it tone the body but it
also adds strength to muscles without the high impact of most other exercises like
weight training or running.

Salsa is also an excellent exercise choice because it combines individual dance
routines that can also be paired up with a partner. Actually, salsa dancing can be
practiced alone and then adding a partner for added excitement. The social charm
that partnered salsa dancing has is very appealing.

A night of dancing is an excellent workout. If you are just learning to salsa dance you
most likely will be working anaerobically. But as you advance to quicker salsa
movements that are more complex like the professional salsa dancers twirling
through the air with jumps and intense spins requiring strength, you will most likely
be working your body anaerobically. This means that your muscles are working at a
high intensity level.

In general, salsa dancing is an excellent workout. You'll get fit, more toned and look
better but also have fun while you're doing it! Start joining the salsa craze now by

About The Author

) and
, a comprehensive guide to salsa news and events in the Bay Area.
Experts agree that dancing salsa can
burn up to 10 calories per minute.
But best of all, salsa dancing is easy
to do. It's an excellent workout
exercise that combines aerobic and
anaerobic training.

Let me explain the difference
between the two...
Aerobic - Specifically refers to the use
of the same large muscle group,
rhythmically, for a period of 15 to 20
minutes or longer while maintaining
60-80% of your maximum heart
rate. Basically it's doing an activity for
a long period of time at low intensity.
