Taeyang, G-Dragon, Teen Top, SHINee, Crayon Pop, Miss A
Taeyang has the perfect example of chocolate abs. K-Pop is known for guys with perfectly defined, chocolate abs and girls whose perfectly curved S-Line bodies are considered the industry standard.While it does require strict management of dietary intake, much of the perfect visuals K-Pop is known for comes from regular exercise.As a fitness trainer, I understand it is difficult to motivate yourself to exercise, especially when the holiday season arrives.Most people do not have the time scheduled in for fitness or the top personal trainers and give up on maintaining a routine.
While mastering the intricate dance moves that are displayed in K-Pop videos can be difficult and time consuming, adding K-Pop songs to a workout playlist is not.If you are a natural dancer and pick up on the moves from videos quickly, those moves can be incorporated into workouts either at the gym or at home.Whether you enjoy dancing or running, K-Pop can provide the absolute best music to be the soundtrack for your exercise.
Why Choose Dance Music For Your Workout?
In order to achieve success in a cardio workout, you should have music that is between 135-145 BPMs (beats per minute).Most dubstep and dance music songs fall within this guideline, which will help to keep you moving at an appropriate pace. The infectious beat of Taeyang'sRinga Lingais wonderful for those who enjoy dance workouts, as well as those who enjoy running on a treadmill.Similarly, the grime infused dance tune that is G-Dragon's Shake The Worldwill not fail to get you up from the couch and moving.The drop or interruption in the tempo that occurs within both songs allow for recovery if you are just beginning to start a workout routine.
While Miss A's Hushprovides a more appropriate backdrop for time spent after a night at the club, the Party Version ofHushis perfect for dance fitness routines such as Zumba or for the gym.The tempo is hard hitting, with little interruptions, which is appropriate for those who have more experience with exercise.SHINee's Everybodyprovides a similar beat structure, which is intended for nightclubs, but just as comfortable in the gym.
IfYou Love To Dance, But Hate Working Out
If you avoid the gym at all costs, but love to dance around your living room, then learning K-Pop dances in the comfort of your home may be more your speed.Teen Top's choreography for Rockingmay be difficult, but the pay off for learning the dance steps is the fact that the footwork is excellent for building stamina and exercising your legs.Loen Entertainment's Let's Danceseries provides an interesting breakdown of the dance steps for Rocking.
The choreography for Crayon Pop's Bar Bar Barprovides an opportunity similar to Teen Top's Rockingin that it is a dance which emphasizes cardio activity and provides a great leg workout.After the second instruction to begin jumping, you will definitely feel the burn.
