Everyone's been going crazy about the Miley Cyrus twerking incident at the VMA's, but they've all forgotten one thing: twerking is pretty exhausting! Have you ever tried to twerk? I did, and my legs and glutes got tired within just a few seconds. It's a tiring move, and it's one that you may want to try to get in shape! Miley Cyrus may not be a role model when it comes to how to behave in public, but she certainly knows about staying fit. You can see how slim she is in her latest music video - though, granted, you can see pretty much everything in that video!
Twerking for FitnessTwerking is more than just shaking your booty - it's actually a really good workout:
- It burns a lot of calories, as you're doing a cardio workout as you dance
- It works those gluteus maximus muscles - the most important muscles for women to define (IMO!)
- It gives your legs a great workout, both quads and hamstrings
- It works your core, as your back and stomach are working with your legs to move your body
