This is a very speedy workout! Two minutes goes by super fast, so before you know it it’s over. The routine is a little tricky, because it’s hard to shimmy and move the arms at the same time the way she does. But if you can get the hang of it, you’ll be keeping your arms up for two minutes straight, so you will definitely feel the burn!

Even if you can’t master it in two minutes, this is a great little belly dancing routine that you can keep practicing it all day long to get a continuous arm workout. Either way, it’s super fun and a decent arm burn, so it’s worth it!
