How’s your day going? Fantastically I hope 😀
On Tuesday I shared a brand new toning routine with you so today I’m showing you an oldie! This is a routine set to Donya, which I discovered and choreographed quite a few years ago. Ironically more than a year after I started using the song it showed up on a Zumba Toning release, which I thought was pretty funny. I mean, what were the chances? Anyway, this routine is primarily a lower body routine with a little upper body action to keep you from getting too bored.
You’ll notice when you watch it in the second verse I kind of fumble along because I tried to show you three different ways you can take it in too short of a period of time. Basically you want to up the difficulty from the first verse by making it a double calve raise and either alternating the arms, or taking it to both arms. It’s really up to you.
In the third verse, make sure to cue participants to keep their chest lifted, shoulders above their hips (otherwise they are going to fall over!), and by the end their legs should definitely be shaking!
And lastly you’ll notice I change the chorus the last time through to a standing crunch with a leg raise, bringing in a little core work and balance work. If they find the balance portion really hard they can obviously bring their foot down between the standing crunch and leg lift to regain balance.
I hope you like it!
