Can you believe there are more to add to the newest exercise craze list? If you’re a little out of the loop here let me get you up to speed. last week i posted a pretty funny article on some crazy workouts that people actually really do.
Today I’ve found a few more for you to have a giggle over but 2 of these will hit the hip pocket a little more than a frisbee or a hula hoop.
It resembles those 80′s sci-fi movies funnily enough called Cocoon. Remember them? Cocooning is you suspended in the air, inverted, floating and really just chillin out.
It was invented by professional gymnast Christopher Harrison, who wanted to develop an exercise routine which was beneficial for the body as well as the mind.
To do this newest exercise craze you will need a hammock which is connected to a chain or something to keep you upside down, but of coarse safe from falling. You perform exercise with such names as inverted sit-ups and side-ups.
But all in all its a form of balancing traditional workouts with some trapeze sort of suspension which supposedly compliments the daily usual workout but in a Zen sort of way. Confused? I am.
I have a friend in the Appalachians of the U.S. that “Spelunk” every weekend and he’s in pretty good shape.
“Spelunking” is a fancy name for cave exploring.
Known as Potholing or Cave climbing in the U.K and Ireland. The exploration can be really high tech with ropes and pulleys and with all the cool climbing gear.
If you don’t like closed spaces, terrifying heights and dark, damp environments I would probably stay away from this newest exercise craze.
Well i don’t know if Zumba is the newest exercise craze but its certainly a craze. There are 12 million people taking weekly Zumba classes in over 110,000 locations across more than 125 countries! Wow! Still it’s comparatively new compared to the more traditional forms of exercise.
Zumba is a Latin dance-inspired fitness program created by dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez in Colombia during the 1990s. Zumba involves dance and aerobic elements. Zumba’s choreography incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, mambo, martial arts, and some Bollywood and belly dance moves. Plus some squats and lunges.
Zumba is made up of 8 different workouts. What you need to get started is an instructor and a class and i believe you can also buy a DVD to do at home but for motivation purposes i recommend finding a local class.
Last one on the newest exercise craze list and ladies its for you. Its called Gyrotonics.
Juliu Horvath created Gyrotonicsequipment and exercises after many years of intense study and self
exploration. This unique method offers the same benefits you get by practicing yoga, doing dance, performing gymnastics, going swimming and tai chi.
Breathing and freedom of movement are emphasized in this newest exercise craze, and judging from the increasing market, its quite a hit.
The only downfall is that you have to have access or own the designed Gyrotonic Expansion System. I don’t know how much it costs but I’m guessing its more than a 16kg kettlebell and swiss ball.
Hope you enjoyed these last 2 posts and i hope it gave you a little a giggle with a few of them.
