Salsa your way to a better body.

first_img Share Share Tweet Share By Verónica Mezzini & Michelle RobertsSalsa. It’s not just a topping for your favorite tortilla chips. This Latin dance and others alike could be the key to attaining a toned bod while sashaying to African-inspired beats and having fun. Just ask boricua beauty Jennifer López who seems to understand the benefits of these high-energy dances, flaunting lean legs at a recent performance.Shaking your hips to some of the most popular Latin rhythms could actually burn the same amount of calories as other traditional forms of exercise. In fact, a 140-pound adult could burn as many as 340 calories during one hour of dancing- the equivalent to swimming or running for the same amount of time. According to health and fitness website Livestrong.com, the movements of these fast-paced dances work the entire body and increase your heart rate to create an extended caloric burn.¡Muévete!: Traditional workouts vs. danceRather than peddling away on a stationary bike or being tied to the treadmill, these dances or bailes can get you a slimmer waistline without sacrificing any fun:• Samba: According to Zumba Instructor Luisa Martínez, this Brazilian dance is one of the most complete ways to burn calories. “You jump, you move all your abs, your hips…it is one of the rhythms that makes you sweat the most.” In fact, the sexy steps will burn about 432 calories in one hour while toning your abductors, quadriceps, hamstrings, calves and glutes.• Salsa: This musical style with Cuban and Puerto Rican roots allows you to work quads, hamstrings, calves, deltoids and biceps either with a partner, suelta (solo) or with multiple couples in a circle (also known as Rueda de Casino). Taking a spin on the floor with this dance is much like practicing low impact aerobics (about 400-410 calories per hour).• Merengue: Rather than walking for one hour at 4 mph, Merengue your way to 372 calories less. The official dance of the Dominican Republic, Merengue puts quads, hamstrings, calves, deltoids and biceps to work.• Cumbia: Historically a courtship dance among Colombian slaves, Cumbia burns almost 396 calories in an hour. The drum-filled beats can help you burn as much fat as practicing water polo for 30 minutes all while exercising your quads, hamstrings, calves, pectorals and deltoid.Happy feet, happy mindAnd it seems these forms of dance not only promise a healthy body, but a healthy mind as well. “It will keep your brain young by keeping your mind fit, because dancing improves your memory by making you recall the steps of your routines,” says Nohelia Siddons, professional Fitness Coach.“For many years people have seen exercise as an activity that required sacrifice in order to get fit,” says Siddons and insists that bringing an amiga along will make it even more enjoyable. “Latin dance is social while many forms of exercise tend to be solitary activities. People go out with friends and exercise without even knowing it.”Certified Personal Trainer Linda Pedrosa also recommends incorporating dance into a fitness repertoire. Though individual exercise plans depend on many variables, practice four days of dance a week along with a “resistance workout twice a week, and one day of rest” for her winning combination.Each step you take to these exotic beats is a step towards a healthier lifestyle with the added benefit that you don’t have to sweat alone; grab a dance partner and shake up those traditional exercises. Why climb stairs every day when you can transport yourself to the Caribbean even for just an hour while getting fit (and pumped!) listening to the sounds of Celia Cruz? You’ll walk away not only with a tighter physique but also with a couple of new moves. ¡Azúcar!Nohelia Siddons is a fitness coach and founder for FM Kidz, Inc.Linda Pedrosa is an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, AFFA Group Exercise Certified Instructor as well as a Certified Pilates Instructor.Luisa Fernanda Martínez is a professional Zumba Instructor.by: MadeInSpanglishcenter_img HealthLifestyle Salsa your way to a better body. by: – June 20, 2011 286 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring!last_img read more

WWE star saved son before drowning

admin No Comments

first_imgFormer professional wrestler and part-time actor Shad Gaspard was swept out to sea off Venice Beach, California.The body of former World Wrestling Entertainment star Shad Gaspard was found at Venice Beach in California, three days after he was swept away by a riptide as he and his 10-year-old son swam. Gaspard, 39, and his son, Aryeh, were swimming Sunday afternoon at Marina Beach in Venice, California, when they were caught by a wave and pulled away from shore by the riptide.Lifeguards sought to save them both, but the wrestler reportedly told them to “take my son.”They did and, when he was safely ashore, they returned to search for Gaspard and were unable to locate him.The Los Angeles County Fire Department’s Lifeguard Division tweeted Thursday (NZT) that authorities had answered a call at the Venice Pier to a report of a body “along the shoreline … that matches the description of Sunday’s missing swimmer.”Police say the body was identified as Gaspard’s. A section chief in the Lifeguard Division described the terrifying situation that the Gaspards quickly found themselves in on the first weekend the beaches were reopened to swimmers and surfers during the novel coronavirus pandemic.With swells reaching 2m, a lifeguard tried to get a “rescue can” – a floater used to tow swimmers to shore – to them, but said, “because of the size of the waves, the boy couldn’t secure it.”“The best way I can describe it,” Kenichi Haskett, the section chief, told ESPN, “is like being inside a front-loading washing machine. The waves keep crashing on you, pushing you down … I’ve been through that, those kind of rescues. You think you might die.”Haskett said that the lifeguard faced the reality that he could not save both, particularly because Gaspard was 2m and weighed around 122.5kg.“Based on the gentleman’s size and the conditions in the water …,” Haskett said, “these are choices we do not want to make.” The Coast Guard tweeted Wednesday that it had suspended the search for Gaspard “after 16.5 hours of searching with multiple rescue assets covering 70 square nautical miles and seven search patterns.”In an Instagram post, the Gaspards’ family expressed gratitude to “the lifeguards, coast guard, divers, fire and police departments for their continued efforts to help find our beloved Shad,” and added: “Shad is a fighter, a warrior and a magical soul. We are hoping and praying for his safe return. As a family we thank you all for your concern and well wishes. Please continue to keep sending your positivity and prayers to our beloved Shad.”In the WWE, Gaspard was part of the tag-team group Cryme Time, along with his partner, JTG.He retired in 2010 and had roles on TV and in movies, including Kevin Hart’s 2015 comedy, “Get Hard.”RelatedPosts Kidnappers kill DSS operative after collecting N5m ransom Emir of Biu is dead Four arrested for killing policeman from Kogi in Ogun Tags: CaliforniadeathRiptideShad GaspardVenice BeachWWElast_img read more

Gibson ready for Ireland return

admin No Comments

first_imgDarron Gibson is ready to re-launch his Ireland career in the face of a potential German onslaught after ending his international exile. The 25-year-old Everton midfielder famously made himself unavailable for his country after spending the entire Euro 2012 finals in Poland sitting on the bench as then manager Giovanni Trapattoni ignored his claims for a place in the team. Following a disastrous campaign in Poland, the Italian singled out Gibson, Seamus Coleman and James McClean as the vanguard of a new generation of players who would take the nation forward, but the former Manchester United man had had enough. Trapattoni’s departure after last month’s World Cup qualifier defeats by Sweden and Austria, which effectively ended their qualification hopes, prompted the Football Association of Ireland to dispense with the 74-year-old’s services, and that in turn persuaded Gibson, who has 19 senior caps, to make himself available once again. Asked if he felt almost as though he was starting all over again, he said: “It does, a little bit, yes, not with the players, the players were fine when I came back in, but obviously with the fans. “I have got something to prove. I thought I should have played back then and hopefully I will get my chance on Friday night to show what I can do.” Gibson’s absence meant he played no role in the meaningful part of the current campaign as Ireland attempted to qualify for a second successive major tournament finals. He said: “It was tough, it was tough to stay away, but it was my decision and I stuck to it. But I am delighted to be back in.” Gibson’s form for Everton has demonstrated exactly what his country has missed since the debacle in Poland, and he was warmly welcomed back into the fold. In explaining his reasons for turning his back on Trapattoni’s Ireland, he pointed to the Italian’s repeated preference for Paul Green, although he insists there was no frosty reception for him for the Leeds man when he arrived at the team hotel. He said: “Me and Paul Green get on well. I didn’t say anything bad about him, I just said I thought I should have been playing ahead of him.” Skipper Robbie Keane missed training on Wednesday morning with an ankle problem, but is expected to be fit for the game. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Gov. Ron DeSantis in ‘discussions’ to add Palm Beach County to Florida’s reopening plan

admin No Comments

first_imgMiami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties are currently not apart of Phase One of the state’s reopening plan, with the exception of elective surgeries. Under the first phase, which started on Monday, restaurants and retail shops across Florida can operate at 25 percent capacity.Local officials are attempting to get the rest of south Florida to open up as well.While at a coronavirus testing site at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens,  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says he hopes Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties will be added to the first phase “soon,” but did not give a specific date.DeSantis said he is in “discussions” with local officials to add Palm Beach County to Phase One of the state’s reopening plan.“We’ll hopefully be able to go forward soon in southern Florida, and I think that we can look to South Florida to really help lead Florida back,” DeSantis said.Although all 3 counties meet the White House requirements to partially reopen in Phase One, DeSantis said that because of the high number of cases in these counties, the decision was made to exclude the counties from Phase One.“I consulted with [Miami-Dade County] Mayor Gimenez, the other appropriate officials in Palm Beach and Broward about what would Phase One look like. And they were doing last week some very important announcements on parks, marinas, boats, golf courses. And so they want to see how that’s going,” DeSantis said. “We’re now going to be in discussions about the next step for these three counties.”last_img read more
