Joey L. Dowdy’s “BURN BABY BURN!”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 3, 2014 by JJgroove01

  Fat Be Gone! Short Full Body Workouts is the key to getting fit.  New Research studies show that short 30 to 40 minutes full body workouts (with little to no breaks in between) 3 – 5 days a week (like dancing, boxing, swimming, weight lifting etc.) are highly effective. How so? It’s because they work muscle groups simultaneously, and is statically proven to be highly effective ways to burn calories for longer lengths of time. It’s a great way to “Burn Baby Burn,” as it too releases toxins, and cut through the fat.

Posted in Dance, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 19, 2009 by JJgroove01

The holidays are almost upon us and with a storm of Television Dance shows rocking the airways you don’t want to be stuck with the same old moves for this year’s holiday festivities. Now is the time to get started. It’s time to Dust Off Those Dancing Shoe and Get A New Groove.” Who knows? Maybe dance beneficial effects will even help you shed a few pounds before the New Year arrives.”

Why Dance? It’s Freedom, Festive & Fun! And it has so many great benefits. Hate to exercise? Well, once you get carried away by ballet or mesmerized by the meringue, you won’t even notice you’re doing the equivalent of running a ten minute mile. Here How, Four Dance Styles Shape Up!

1. Afro-Latino (Caribbean) It consist of movements with lots crouching, bending of the knees, requires a loose head, arching of the back, and gathering undulating arms movements, often done to live drumming.

Great For Toning
It works the thighs (all that squatting), arms, butt, and legs.

Soul Boost
You’ll let go of inhibitions and feel a communal connection with your authentic self, and the entire group.

Caveat ( Be Warned)The aerobic intensity might be discouraging at first, but hang in there you’ll be hooked!

2. Ballet
Is a precise, structured
series of turned-out knee bends (plies), leg and arm extensions, fast foot work, jumps and leaps that emphasize an erect body and flexible straight.

Great For Toning
It’s great for the upper torso, calves, thighs, and butt thanks to all the lifting and turned-out leg positions. They
become beautiful sculpted.

Soul Boost
You’ll find yourself standing, sitting and moving with better poster and more grace as your body memorizes the movement.

Caveat ( Be Warned)
There’s no swiveling of the hips or shoulders, so if you’re looking to get down, this may not be your better choice.

3. Hip –Hop
Hip hop provides street wise moves to a funky, syncopated beat, involving isolated upper body and hand moves, punches, kicks, shoulders, rib, and hip gyrations linked together.

Great For Toning
The thigh, hips, and butts.

Soul Boost
You’ll leave class feeling energized, powerful, with a new strut in your walk.

Caveat ( Be Warned) Its fast moves and counter-intuitive beats can take a while to pick up. But you’ll feel proud when you do.

4. Latin
A variety of dances including the meringue, salsa, tango, and mambo, with lots of complex footwork and hip rotations, usually done with a partner, but some gyms & dance centers offer latin inspired solo workouts.

Joey L. Dowdy’s “Eat Yourself Skinny” PT.2

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2009 by JJgroove01

<Secrets>

 What’s up Groovy People? It’s Joey L. Dowdy, World Dance Groove’s

 I relate eating nutritiously to like learning a hot dance routine.

 A great dance routine has all the right elements that make the experience satisfying and complete. How you might ask?

  It has a beginning (it’s enjoyable), a middle (it’s fulfilling), and an ending (it’s rewarding).  Now, wouldn’t it be fabulous if you could get the same enjoyment by applying the same techniques to your eating? Well, I have good news, You Can!  

 Just like a spicy dance routine your approach and technique for healthy eating can be transforming if you find the right elements that will make healthy eating Enjoyable, Fulfilling, and Rewarding.

 In fact, I can think of one right now that’ll help you jump start the process. However, it’s something you have to do every day.

  Now get this, “It is statistically proven that those who do it are usually thinner than those who don’t.”

This is one element you’ll definitely need, if you desire to be a “Lean Mean Fat Burning Machine.”

 What is it?

You must, “Eat Breakfast.” Why? Here, find out, take a look at my

3 Step “Eat Your Skinny” Breakfast Plan.

 Step 1

 Start Your Day Out- Right with Breakfast.

 * The secret is to make your choices desirable and healthy.

 Reward: If you start you day off right you’ll more be encouraged to end it right.

Step 2

Eating balanced is the key. Variety even with food choices can be your spice of life; make sure you eat foods rich in nutrients; it will see you through a busy morning.

  *Eating a good balanced breakfast gives you the energy to get you going after a long night without food.

Reward: You should wake up excited to feed you body, it deserves it.

Step 3

Make Healthy Choices,

Eat this-

Low-fat or fat-free milk products, whole grains, (oats, waffles, toast, cereal, bran muffins) varied fruits, lean protein (nuts, yogurt, flaxseed, lean meats, eggs whites, etc.)

Reward: These products can help contribute to a Smaller Leaner You!

 -Less of That

AVOID eating foods that are high in saturated, Tran’s fats, added sugars, and or high in cholesterol. Such as donuts, mammoth muffins, croissants, cream cheeses, coffee drinks like mochas, frappuccinos, caramel coffee, etc. These products have more calories which will eventually add to your waist line. 

 Reward:  If I stay on track by making the right moves and proper choices I see how you can literally, “Eat Yourself Skinny!

PAY OFF!

Breakfast food is fuel for your body’s engine; feeding it early on helps keep it energized and revved up,  it starts the daily calorie burning process.

Note: Don’t forget to include a daily fun work out because,” Cardio Does the Body Good.”
