Play The Drums
You would be extremely surprised if you picked up some drum sticks and started jamming on the drums. It’s actually a great workout for your whole body because you are always moving and getting faster and faster.
Part of the reason I started playing the drums was because they were easier to pick up and play compared to a guitar or piano. I have always enjoyed listening to music and the drums are great if you can keep a rhythm but yet you can’t read music at all or at least too well. I haven’t played for awhile but I still use a practice drumming pad to practice because the actual drum set is quite loud.
When you are playing, your arms and legs and even your torso get an excellent workout. I break a sweat when I play and it’s great cardio and this is coming from someone who likes to run and ride bikes.
Drumming is a pretty inexpensive hobby, especially if you just want to get a practice pad to play on and buy a couple sticks, which is a great way to build up strength to be able to play faster.
I blog about creative ways to start active and this one is a little off the subject, but then at the same time it’s a great way to combine being active and music at the same time. No matter what I’m doing I usually have head phones on listening to music anyways.
Music is a huge motivator for me because it keeps my mind off of being tired and gets me pumped up to continue working out, especially if I’m running or riding a bike.
I hope that this post will open up your mind about drumming and music in general. If anything, I want to promote listening to music while you are being active and it will make your activities that much more enjoyable. Hope you all have a great day!
