Twerking Tones Your Glutes and Core; A Firmer Butt Awaits
As you may have heard by now, twerking is said to derive from a traditional African dance called "mapouka", in which the dancer rhythmically shakes the behind while facing away from viewers. (The traditional form is not considered risque in the way for which Ms. Cyrus is now famous.) If you have seen either the traditional or modern form, you won't be surprised to learn that the movement involves a number of muscles including those of the lower back, the hamstrings, the abs, and needless to say the glutes. In a recent article on Healthline.com, Caley Bohn, "a certified personal trainer and assistant director of a corporate wellness company in Wisconsin", estimates that twerking "burns between five and eight calories per minute for a 150-pound individual." This means that if you find good music that you wish to twerk to, or even if you prefer twerking in silence, you can burn between 300-480 calories an hour doing so.
Resistance training is a trend that may last longer than twerking. (Or not, for who's to say when it comes to longevity of fashions?) Brian Macoun, spokesman for Sleek-Tone EXERCISE BANDS, available on Amazon.com, says he would of course love to see people use his company's loop bands as training to help get their twerk on. "But that makes the twerk sound like work---kind of butt backward, if you know what I mean." Macoun added that resistance work makes it easy to target specific muscle groups. "Just by changing position slightly, you can work muscles and joints efficiently and safely, using the resistance that is within the latex itself. And adding our bands even to the simplest exercises amplies the benefits. Interested parties can go to our YouTube channel and find videos for specific workouts."
Macoun suggests that a dance craze that involved twerking with RESISTANCE BANDS would be great both for his business and for the toning of glutes in the general population. "I'll have to talk to Miley about that. But I think we'd need to increase our inventory first."
SLEEK-TONE is dedicated to providing high-quality resistance bands and other fitness and health-related items (as you can read about in their high-rated exercise band reviews).
