Work It Out Wednesdays #1: Dance Cardio Workout with Nikki Pebbles

I'm really excited to bring a new post series to the blog called Work It Out Wednesdays where each Wednesday, I'll feature a new workout or special topic for you all to try out or learn about. What better place to start off the series then by featuring all of my other amazing 2015 Women's Health Action Heroes.  I recruited some of these fitness queens to share with my blog readers a fun workout or fitness & nutrition tips.

This first post is an amazing start to the series with my fellow WH Action Hero & total badass, Nikki Pebbles who is sharing an awesome dance cardio workout. While I'm not very comfortable (or very good at!) cardio dancing, I'm definitely going to try this out, in the privacy of my own apartment of course.  I'll trip to not look completely ridiculous!


Here’s an easy dance cardio combo that you can literally do ANYWHERE! Even if you aren’t a dancer, this routine has a number squat variations and offers a great cardio alternative to the treadmill! Take your time, smile, and WORK IT, GIRL!

  1. I love the IDEA of dance cardio... but I can't execute haha. For me, the most coordination I get is "right foot, left foot, right foot, left foot..."

    1. I agree..trying to stay on beat, do the right move, on the correct side is too much for me to handle!

  2. Sooooo I love this. The last time I went out, I ended up staying all night dancing with my friends. Um... HOLY SORE! My calves, hamstrings, quads... everything was sore! Definitely used muscles in a totally different way! Best workout lately is still running - I missed it during my three week hiatus! Although plyos still have a place in my heart : )

    1. What an awesome dream! I probably look better dancing in my dreams than I do in real life!

  5. I have been 100% into workout DVD's and a HUGE fan of Turbo Jam, Turbo Fire, etc for almost 8 years now, but I just can't get into it anymore. I have started walking/running and I don't know if I can ever go back to the DVDs.
    This workout looks awesome though!!

    1. I used to be able to do DVDs too but now I get bored after like 5 minutes. Or my couch is too close to the TV haha.
