Learning More About Body Aerobics

Feb 20, 2008
Aerobics is a great way to not only get the cardiovascular system into shape, but also your entire body. Aerobics works the entire body, this of course helps with the heart and lungs but it also can take pounds and inches off.

This type of exercise is good for the entire body, but some people are looking for belly aerobics to take care of those love handles and cut down on that apple shape. Belly aerobics can be incorporated into the aerobic routine, and is often a by product of the entire work out.

How Belly Aerobics Are Worked Into a Lifestyle

Belly aerobics is part of most routines during any type of aerobic work out. Belly aerobics occurs whenever a person stretches their arms up and then twists the body to reach for the other side. This type of repetitive motion works all of the muscles in the sides of the stomach helping to trim down the waistline.

Most aerobic teachers also work in a floor routine during their classes. This part of the class generally involves many sit-ups which of course is one of the best types of exercise to do in order to trim that tummy up. Sit ups tighten all of the muscles in the stomach and make them work their way back into shape. Sit-ups are generally done at the end of the routine, but the stomach has already had a work out during the aerobic work-out.

Another way to find a good belly aerobic work out is to try some different classes. One type of aerobic work-out that works those tummy muscles is belly dancing. In order to be able to perform a proper belly dance, a person has to have good muscles in their tummy.

A Belly dancing class may be a little more of a challenge to find then a regular aerobics class, but there are cd's that can teach this form of aerobic exercise as well as tutorials on line for learning how to belly dance. This type of belly aerobics is a real work-out for the tummy muscles and can definitely get that stomach back into shape.

Sit-ups are of course one of the mainstays when it comes to working the stomach muscles. Regular sit-ups as well as crunches work the entire stomach. Crunches help to work the lower stomach by placing the legs in the air at a ninety degree angle and then sitting up, the lower region of the stomach is given a strenuous work-out. Belly aerobics can be found in most aerobic classes, and often participants don't even realize they are working on their stomachs.
