    Well had my second zumba class tonight!
    Even though I have no coordination at all!!!!! I love zumba. Its fun even though I miss a few steps here and there. It make me feel energised, up beat and leaves me aching (probably because I'm new to exercise) but I love aching after a work out and the following day as i feel like iv actually made a difference and done something! Can't wait for next weeks class!
    Although next week we are attempting leg, bums and tums followed by zumba!!!! Yes we are mad! And we will feel the burn!
    How's every1, else finding it? Xx

    i love the burn i get from zumba. i do it 3-4 times a week on top of running a couple of times and doing core too. tuesday's i burn loads. i do core, then i run 4-5 miles depending on how long i've got between core and zumba, then it's zumba. only thing is when i get to zumba i already feel a little tired and it's harder to put as much into it as i usually do.

    I had my 3rd session last night and now I've mastered the steps so far I can put a bit more effort in and ache a bit more each time! I am loving it and even though I can hardly move after I love that feeling when you know its working! I go Wednesdays and Fridays and Swim Mondays. I do between 50 and 100 sit ups daily as its my baby belly that is my problem area more than anything else! x

    you might want to find a core class or do pilates. sit ups are great but i think core is fab too.

    we did this for a few weeks. YouTube - Beginner Pilates Exercises : Pilates Exercises: Half-Roll Down

    we held the half roll down for 5, then 7, 9 seconds. then slowly up for the 5,7,9 sec count. this week we did a half roll down held it then continued to the floor. we then gradually rolled back up stopping at the 5,7,9 sec marks. making sure our core was stong and not our arms or legs or any other part of our body.

    here's an example of the roll up. YouTube - Beginner Pilates Exercises : Pilates Exercises: Roll Up we do it with out legs bent as it's harder.

    p.s there must be done as slowly as possibly, no jerky movements.
