DDR Weight Loss Demonstrated

| | Comments (0)
The American Council on Exercise commissioned a study from the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse to quantify the potential for Dance Dance Revolution as an exercise tool.
The study, using DDR Extreme 2 on the PlayStation 2 demonstrated the obvious – that DDR is comparable to other aerobic exercise. 24 volunteers practiced a four-song dance sequence. Half of the volunteers were under 18. On average, the teens burned 5.9 kcal/min on light mode, 6.7 kcal/min on standard and 8.1 kcal/min on difficult mode. Adults burned even more calories, due to higher body weight.
