I’ve learned that, despite not being that much of a dancer, dance cardio workouts at home are effective. They can make you break a sweat and are a great alternative to embarrassing yourself at Zumba (yes, I know from experience). Plus, it’s an excuse to spike your heart rate while jamming to some of your favorite hits. Sure, weightlifting to a motivational, no-excuses playlist is a good time, but getting your groove on to kickass music, even if you don’t normally frequent the dance floor, promises all kinds of fun.
Lauv is a pop artist whose songs are particularly workout-friendly. Hits like “Chasing Fire” and “F*ck, I’m Lonely” get you in your feelings (at least, that’s what they do for me on my commute to and from the office and whenever I’m in the mood for his syrupy-smooth vocals) and also feature beats that get you moving. And when it comes to dancing to his hits, you’ll be sure to finish with a smile. Ahead, check out dance cardio workouts set to Lauv songs. If you want more follow-along videos that aren’t just Lauv-related but keep the vibe going, you can find pop music ab sessions here. Go dance like nobody’s watching (because, alone in your room, no one is!).
