Bring Your Body Back To Shape With The DDR Computer Game

Oct 29, 2007
Even though most people around us are way out of a healthy figure, they do not think much about exercising. It's not that they do not know the consideration of some physical exercise; the important reason is that they are not motivated enough to exercise. And that is true, for someone who has led a more or less stationary life, exercising can be a real pain.

But Dance Dance Revolution has changed all that. Here's a way by which people can exercise, and that too doing something everybody likes to listening to music and playing a video game to boot! The concept of Dance Dance Revolution is simple. There is a game screen with an arcade game set on it. But instead of the regular joystick or the keyboard controls, there is a dance pad on the floor. Yes, the floor! The dance pad has the four arrow keys. The player has to step on these keys in order to play. So, instead of pressing the arrow keys by hand, the player has to step on the keys.

What's more fun is that the arcade game plays to music, and you can select the music. People who look upon the Dance Dance Revolution as an exercise machine will do well to begin with a slow tune first. The game will play according to music and you control it by jumping onto the dance pad. It's actually jumping, but you can convert it into a kind of dance later on as you become proficient. You can loop the same tune so that you keep playing, or you can pause the game and shuffle the track. As you become a proficient at playing the game with slower tunes, you can go on to faster tunes that will give you more exercise.

There's good reason too you can keep scores. The scores are on the basis of the hits and misses you have had in the game. Naturally, if you want to improve on the scores, you will have to play faster the next time. And that means more exercise. But, drawn to the game, people do exercise more and more on Dance Dance Revolution.

Experts believe that people can burn more calories through the Dance Dance Revolution than with any other method that they can do indoors. There is a psychological reason for that actually. Since people like the songs and the game keeps them hooked, they do not know that they are actually exercising. That means, they exercise for a longer time than on other methods. That is the reason why some doctors have started prescribing exercises on the Dance Dance Revolution. Just about fifteen minutes of exercising on this machine can give very good results at weight loss, but with a Dance Dance Revolution in your home, you might certainly end up exercising much more than you ever intended to.
