    Was wondering who else has this? and what differences they have noticed in themselves? definitely feel it in my arms, but as also wondering would people call this as low intensity when exercising? ... surely it can't be moderate?

    thanks :)

    I would think dancing comes under moderate to vigorous exercise depending on how energetic you are at it.


    What's the difference between light, moderate and vigorous exercise?

    excellent thank you!!! i've been putting it all down as low as i didn't know what to class it as, i think dancing definitely moderate for me, but the 10min free jogging on wii fit definitely vigorous! :D

    thanks again!! :)

    I agree - I put this down as moderate. Though if I do all the 3star effort ones, then it sure as heck trips over into vigorous!!
    I do this alongside EA Sports Active (and Wii Fit Plus, though not so often these days). I have to knock out all the lower body exercises on the Active due to knee problems, so that workout is primarily cardio and upper body. Along with Just Dance, I've seen a real improvement in my 'bingo wings', and my bust is shrinking - not sure if I'm actually losing weight there or just toning up though, but either way I'm very pleased with the results so far.

    It's fairly addictive wouldn't you agree??? lol

    I've been doing the 30 day challenge on Active and make sure I have the tension band really tight with the upper body exercises. With Just Dance I've found that there are a fair few dances with lots of arm movements. I can really feel that I've worked out my arms and shoulders as long as I make sure I really make sure I do the full extensions on those arm movements.

    Other than that, the only tip really, is to just keep going! The more you do, the more progress you'll make. Also, make sure you have variety so you don't get into a routine and your body gets used to what you're doing - keep it guessing!! lol

    If you haven't already get a blue resistance band from ebay, you'll certainly notice a difference. The other thing is tricep dips on the bottom step or a chair. Or bottles of water as resistance.

    how do you tricep dips please? i already have the blue resistance band! but think i need to get one that's a bit longer as it's hopeless trying to use it as times to stretch higher up! :( by using water bottles do you mean use them like weights?

    thank you so much for help and your time xxx

    Gosh you must be strong if the blue one isn't challenging you! The black one is the hardest.Yes you can use 2 litre milk bottles of water to work your triceps, but if you use your body weight you will get results far quicker. Cop this

    originally i connected the nunchuck to the wii remote and then found it was too short to do the wide arms on Just Dance, but i have now taken the nun chuck off, much better :silly:

    I went on a toning table for the first time today and can really feel it on the back of my arms... definitely worth a go! Also, lift your water bottles above your head and bend your elbow... not sure what the lift is called but it was recommended to me by an instructor at the gym.
