Dr. Oz: Red Hot Workouts
Dr. Oz shared some red hot workouts to help you reach your fitness goals and blast the fat in just 10 minutes. Dr. Oz talked to fitness expert couple Billy Blanks, Jr., and Sharon Blanks. Billy said his workouts focus on dancing and high intensity cardio. Sharon said women are often hard on themselves and are intimidated by the gym. She suggested women do something fun at home. Just because it’s fun doesn’t mean you can’t lose weight. Doing something fun will encourage you to commit to workout. At home, you can also work out to your own pace without any pressure.
Dr. Oz: Hip Hop Dance Workout
Billy and Sharon showed eight members form audience how to workout. They started with a hip hop workout, step-touching from side to side. They also made a rowing motion with their hands.
After the hip hop dance, they did a modified grapevine, where you step your left leg over your right, then bring it back and step your right over your left. They also did a move Billy called a “paddy cake” where you press your hands forward against an invisible wall.
Dr. Oz: Workout Moves
The moves looked fun and challenging and also included a lot of shimmies, sidestepping, and rolling the hips. They also eventually did a real grapevine really quickly with a kick on each end.
The hardest looking one to me was a run in place with your back arched forward. The audience members who all participated looked like they were having a lot of fun.
Billy and Sharon Blanks have a new five DVD collection called Dance it Out out now.
Dr. Oz: Snowman Cartoon
At the end of the show, Dr. Oz talked about how February 6 is National Wear Red Day to raise awareness about heart disease. He shared a cartoon that reminded him of what happens when you drink too much red wine. The cartoon was of one snowman scolding his friend for drinking too much. He says, “Didn’t I warn you about going out and getting plowed?” The other snowman had been plowed by a truck into a big pile of snow.
Dr. Oz said that younger members of his staff didn’t know what plowed meant. He had to explain to them it meant drunk. He then said he was told the kids are saying “wasted” these days.
