Benefits of Aerobic Dance for Cardiorespiratory Fitness

Aerobic dance provides benefits to the cardiorespiratory system, particularly to its engine, the heart. Aerobic means work in the presence of oxygen. The systems involved in oxygen transport for us to make any activity such as aerobics are the respiratory and circulatory systems. With aerobic activity, our heart gets stronger and increases its size. This reduces the number of beats per minute and our heart becomes strong enough to supply the entire body with precious oxygen with only a few beats.

In addition, the heart vessels increase their ability to carry blood and oxygen to small blood vessels and this improves the entire network of blood circulation inside our body. The lungs also improve their ability to attract and retain air outside a larger volume of oxygen, which is a good starting point to reach all the organs and tissues that need it.

People who exercise on a regular basis and make aerobic dance exercises a part of their routine are people who tend to have more success with its long-term program. For maximum benefit, exercise sessions should be conducted at least three times a week. Many health clubs have aerobics and fitness classes that can provide an incentive to keep the pace from the exercise on a regular schedule. However, it is not necessary to join any health club for exercise. Perhaps one of the biggest advantages of aerobics is that each person can work at the intensity that is most beneficial to him/her personally. However, for this to work, a person can find an aerobic class or aerobic group with similar interests and characteristics.

More Benefits of Aerobic Exercises:

  • Aerobic exercise stimulates and works on many different muscle groups at the same time.
  • Aerobic exercise accelerates the heart and improves breathing. (To get improvement from an aerobics routine, continue the exercise for at least several minutes).
  • Aerobic exercise helps maintain muscle tone and power. (It is designed to increase muscle or to build the body, such as weight lifting).
  • Aerobic exercise forces stretched out muscles, which makes a person relaxed. This is an added benefit for patients with ataxia who also have a little stiffness in their body.

Least but not last, benefits of aerobic dance includes weight loss, decreased stress, improved physical fitness including cardiorespiratory fitness, increased alertness, and active lifestyle. These dance workouts are much more fun when done with our favorite and famous music like Carmen Electra’s Aerobic Striptease, Roll Of The Pounds with gym ball, Christi Taylor Totally Cool Step Aerobics, etc. Regarding me, I love Punjabi bhangra beats when performing aerobic dance workouts with my family because these Punjabi beats like Masala Bhangra Workout and Punjabi Fire Dance give us more passion and maintain interest in the exercise routine.

Whenever I am in close relative's marriage or a friend's occasion and I hear the bhangra beats, I am not able to hold myself from dancing. I think dance and music is in my soul and songs come from my heart.
