Fitness Challenge Friday #1: "Get Low"

Now is the time to get off your couch and follow our first Fitness Challenge Friday post of 2013, which will help you get the most out of your Dance Central play sessions! We’re kicking things off with a playlist challenge that will put your legs to work. By performing squat-like movements, or essentially gettin’ low with your favorite songs, you’re working some of the largest muscle groups in your body, which will get your blood pumping while helping you strengthen your lower half!

This week we’re issuing a challenge we’d like to call “Get Low” after one of the songs key to this exercise. We’re going to help you get a great lower body workout that will strengthen those legs and build the foundation for flawless Dance Central performances.


Choose 10 songs (minimum, feel free to add more) from the list below and create a playlist in Dance Central 3. Click here to learn how to make a playlist!
