WHAT THE, I DON'T EVEN...
My dad keeps asking for a nice picture of me to frame and give to my grandparents as a gift. This is, IMHO, one of the best pictures I have of myself. Not kidding…I take a lot of pictures but apparently none exist of me doing anything normal.

Anime Aerobics Move List!

Hello!

Here’s a quick peak at the moves we learnt during the Anime Aerobics class. If you want to see how they are executed, google the specific move and let YouTube do the rest!

So here are the steps in the order that we learnt them:

Warm-up included 4 basic cardio boxing moves:
Jab Front, Jab Side, Hook, and Uppercut

Major muscles we stretched during the warm-up were:
Shoulders, triceps, quadriceps (thighs), calves, and hamstrings.

Cardio Dance Section:

Phrase 1
Basic Grapevine (x4)
Grapevine with Leg Curl (x4)

Phrase 2
Knee Lifts (x8)
Heel Digs (x8)

Phrase 3
Step-Reach (x4)
Hips Side to Side (x4) (You might not be able to google this one…but as long as you step side to side and wiggle those hips, you’re all good!)

Phrase 4:
Ponies (8)
Rocker Step (a.k.a Step to the side with fist pump.) (x4)

Cool-Down Dances:

Salsa and Bachata (As longs as you get the basic moves down, you can ad-lib to the music. Zumba videos are usually good at showing the basics for these.)

Major muscles we stretched during the cool-down were:
Shoulders, triceps, quadriceps (thighs), calves, and hamstrings.

Yay!

Anime Aerobics Playlist

OK so here’s the deal. The following is a list of links that lead to the sources of music I used in my Anime Aerobics class. I need to point out that aerobics music is a little tricky and that you usually can’t just use a song in its original format (sometimes you can, and it’s amazing). I’ve taken these songs and spliced them down to a 4/4 count to ensure continuity during the class. I’ve also sped up/slowed down some of the tracks.

This being said, some of the direct links will be great for workout music and some of them will be too slow. All of them will most likely not have a continuous 4/4 count.
Because of this, I’ve uploaded my actual class music file on SoundCloud!

Although I spent many hard hours editing this beauty, I take absolutely no credit for creating the music itself. Music credit can be found through the YouTube links. :)
