After watching the hilarious dance walking craze video last year, I thought I had my workout routine for life picked out. Like seriously, why go into a gym and sweat and work when you could simply dance down the street? But then, I saw this prancercise tape. As in prancing, dancing, and exercise combined. It's a 1980s workout that never caught on, but lucky for us, creator Joanna Rohrback's prancertastic workout video is FINALLY going viral. FYI: She. Is. Phenomenal.
The best part? All you need is ankle weights and a free spirit. Well that, and the willingness to attempt moves similar to that of a horse's gait. Right. Channel your inner stallion, and you'll be fit in no time.
But seriously, this is totally hilarious. As in, funniest thing you'll watch all week ... or at LEAST today. Check out the basics of prancercise, here:
I know. It's like, is she serious? Like, do you see what she's doing at 2:37?! THAT GALLOP! Is this a joke? I don't even care -- it's epically fantastic.
And besides, you can't get on this skinny little lady for wanting to get her workout in doing something she enjoys. There are loads of CRAZY workouts that look silly but people still do 'em anyway. Zumba, for one. Or how about stiletto workouts or even upside-down yoga? Yeah, these things look funny in practice, but just like prancercise, they help you get fit.
So heck with it. Whip out the weights and get to prancing. I mean, clearly, this woman's in GREAT shape. It obviously works! I suggest doing it in a group and putting on some '80s leggings and a sweatband to boot. Me, I like mine in hot pink.
Would you ever try prancercise?
