    Can’t say that I’ve ever really tried too many choreographed workouts, but if I did, I would be the drunk elephant right there beside ya. If I get my body doing too many things, everything falls apart it seems. Lots of moving for me ends up looking like a person that is drowning on land!

      LOL- choreography isn’t my gift, thank goodness I live in a fantasy world.

    Zumba gets easier the more you do it. I can almost do the entire 60 min. workout DVD without pausing the damn thing. I still can’t do some of the moves the same way they can but I don’t really worry about that too much. I still do want to kill all of the people on the DVD at the end of the workout but I really don’t see that changing anytime soon.

      I am keeping up pretty good, as long as I don’t clap! Doesn’t every one feel homicidal rage at the end of a workout where perky fit people still look good while you look like a red faced dieing lunatic? There needs a be a set of angry/goth/emo/punk workout tapes

    That’s the kind of thing that happens to me, too. The brain just shuts down.

    For fun, next time you’re in the pool, try to do jumping jack legs with cross-country arms. Your brain will fry!

    I have done Zumba quite a bit. Here’s what I’ve learned: If I get confused, I have to drop everything else and focus on the footwork. Once I have that down, I can add hands. But if I try to learn both at once, I can get lost. You are not alone! 🙂

      Yes the base footwork is important and I have to add in the non-moving foot as part of the step, or I can’t make it work.

    OMG, that reminds me of band camp. I could play the music. I could march. The first time we tried to put the two together, it was the worst train wreck ever.

    Funny. I can’t do the clap either. And if there is more than one clap, I might even fall down. I hear laughing burns a good deal of calories. Jane
