Conditioning Exercises For Ballet Dancers

While ballet training may offer a type of fitness regime, in the December 2005 issue of "Dance Magazine," Linda Hamilton, a former New York city ballet dancer, advises that dancers get out of the studio to try other types of conditioning or cross-training exercises to complement their dance training and to help prevent injuries. Ballet classes offers little in the way of cardiovascular endurance training, yet dancing can become difficult if you are lacking in this area. Doing 30 minutes of low-impact cardio training, two to three days per week, will vastly improve your lung capacity, as well as your overall cardiovascular health.

6 minute workout

With everything that we have to do today, I didn’t have time for a full workout, but don’t worry because I put together this savage little 6 minute full body routine that will rock you out. I think that it is always better to do something than to skip your training completely, and this workout may come in a small package, but as you can see in the video, if you are pushing it at your max effort – full throttle – you won’t have anything left after 6 minutes.

This is a perfect solution if you find yourself really busy and pressed for time – and you can also extend the torture by doing this 2 times back to back. As I said tho, the real test of your effort is that by the end of the 6 minutes you should be tapped out. Freddy & I will be back this weekend with new BodyRockers, a new diet challenge and possibly a life post if we actually do anything interesting besides packing! Yoga for Happy Hips - Vega Community.
