In today’s world, dancing is very versatile and new dancing styles are coming to be daily. One of such styles is twerking and just hearing the word is synonymous to most of us seeing the image of Miley Cyrus who twerks like it is the sole reason she was born. Most people don’t know but the move is actually good for cardio health and t also helps to keep lower body muscles (waist, hips, thighs and legs) in great shape. How to twerk is a question that has been in the minds of many and here is what you need to do to learn and keep up with the likes of Miley and Rihanna.


Step 1:

Do a few sets of Leg presses using low weight for beginners, this helps to build your glutes and strengthen your legs so that you can gain more booty shaking power and endurance.

Step 2:


Dog push ups, aerobics and rear leg extensions will help you strengthen your legs, core, thighs and cut back on the cellulite that may keep your body from moving and bouncing.

Step 3:

A few sets of reverse lunges will boost your leg stamina as they hit the back of the legs giving you the much needed power to twerk. 

Step 4:

After all the exercising, now stand in the twerking stance which is with knees slightly bent, legs apart and a straight back. Trace an O- shape with your booty and do rotations for the around the world move. For the booty clap, pop your lower back and stay in tune with music beats. If you are feeling particularly advanced and able, try the brick break where your legs (in half split) lift your booty into the air and them in a full split brings it down.

Step 5:

Lastly dancing is about creativity so move around and be innovative. Also remember twerking is a workout so be careful but enjoy.
