  What are the health risks of "subject three"

  Injury of knee joint and ankle joint: In the process of dancing, the knee joint and ankle joint should be turned inside out quickly. If the strength and coordination are not enough, it may lead to the injury of lateral ligament of knee joint and lateral ligament of ankle joint, and may also affect cartilage and meniscus in joint.

  Muscle strain: Dancing may involve some muscle groups that need great exercise. If you don’t warm up enough or your muscle strength is insufficient, it may lead to muscle strain.

  Lumbar injury: You need to maintain a certain posture when dancing, especially when there are many waist movements. If the posture is incorrect or excessive force is exerted, it may lead to lumbar injury.

  Increased cardiovascular burden: Dancing is an aerobic exercise. For some untrained people, excessive dancing may increase the cardiovascular burden.
