Why are more and more people losing weight by playing the game of Dance Dance Revolution? Well, the answer to that is because the Dance Dance Revolution is extremely fun and addictive and people cannot stop playing after they started. Currently, there are gyms that provide dance dance revolution workouts. These gyms would have a big screen TV and provide everyone a dance pad much like the picture below:
Once the music starts, everyone would start dancing on their own dance pads. With this type of workout, people will get tired, lose weight, and have a lot of fun at the same time. See successful stories of people who had lost weights by playing dance dance revolution.
You may also get these dance dance revolution exercise at home. What you will need is a gaming console (Playstation 1, 2 or X Box), 1 or 2 (for 2 players) dance dance revolution pads, and ddr games (DDR Konamix, DDR Max, DDR Max 2, or DDR Ultramix). Be sure to warm up first before you step onto the dance pad, because you do not want to get cramps on your legs. First start out with beginner levels to get yourself warmed up for faster levels. If you are a beginner, then you should keep playing the beginner levels until you are ready for higher levels. Faster levels will burn more calories because your are sweating more by moving faster to the music.
If you are a hardcore dancer, be sure to have a bottle of water or sports drink right next to you. The reason for that is because you will get thirsty and exhausted after you play dance dance revolution for a long period of time. Water and sports drink will revitalize your energy so that you may player longer.
What type of dance pad is best suitable for me? The answer to that is that it depends on what type of dance revolution gamer you are. If you are a hardcore or heavy ddr dancer, then you need a dance pad that will be durable. The most durable dance pads will be dance dance revolution super arcade or metal pad. Most of these hardcore DDR dancers will have a space especially for playing dance dance revolution.
If you are a occasional dance dance revolution player, all you really need is 1 or 2 dance revolution soft pads. These soft pads may be folded and stored in your closets or drawers, so that you can play dance dance revolution when you feel like it. The most recommended soft pad will be the Dance Dance Revolution Deluxe V2.0 Pad because it has 1 inch soft paddings which make your feet comfortable when you play dance dance revolution.
