Twerking as exercise… not necessarily something that most people would take seriously straight away. But Lexy Panterra and Christina Millian are hoping to change your mind.
Following the success of her workout classes and receiving the support from celebrities such as Mel B, Karrueche Tran and Christina, Lexy teamed up with Miss Millian to launch the official twerkout app.
I first heard about Lexy when I had to write an article about a private workout classes with Mel B, and I instantly wished I was in Los Angeles so I could head over to her class and see what all the fuss was about.
I was recently approached to give the app a try and it must come as no surprise that I kinda love it. Lexy has a fun and bubbly personality that comes through really well. Plus, an amazing booty that moves in ways I wish mine could.
The app has a very handy techniques section in which Lexy teaches you how to do all the twerking moves in existence.
For those in the States, there is a calendar which lets you know when and where classes are being held, but for those who can’t head there there are some routines you can do at home.
Sadly, there is only three short routines on the app at the moment and they are split into standing routine, mid routine and floor routine.
The standing routine is my favourite by far, and with all three you can tell you are burning calories. Maybe not in the most effective way, but surely most will agree it is far more fun that running a treadmill all day.
The routines are set to what sounds like songs created especially for Lexy and there are perfect for making your ass pop.
The mid routine is also pretty good but for the floor routine you definitely need so shin pads or some sort of protection!
Verdict: This is a fun way to learn how to twerk that ass AND burn some calories at the same time.
While the small number of routines is a bit of a pain for now (hopefully there are more to come), this is definitely worth downloading just so you can have some fun with your girls next time you get together for a girls night.
