Has anyone ever done a specific dance workout? I would like to start working out to help my stamina and build up the muscles necessary to look good while dancing (my torso needs a bit of work for latin Roll Eyes ) any advice in trying to create a dancing workout regime would be great Smiley

somewhere on here I did post a training manual from MIT that was very interesting, you might want to find it and read that to see if you can get any tips.

Of curse.

I think you should start with Yoga.
Yoga will work on your both figure and flexability.

I run every day something around 6-7 kilometers in order to loss some of my extra weight.
If one of you want to try this one, be sure to make some stercthes to your muscles both before and after the run,
very very very important for everyone and especially dancers.

I don't have much time for excercise - so dancing itself is the excersize for my dancing!  Of course there is a lot to be said for this since it uses exactly the right set of muscles/joints. OTOH I suppose one may run a higher danger of a use-injury.  Anyone know if thats true?

No idea. *shrug*

I would think that cross training with a different exercise regimen would be better, though, as it would balance things out by using the muscles that dance doesn't.  I also like Goldstar's suggestion of yoga, as that would help build flexibility and (depending on the yoga) can build strength as well.

We have another topic on this I believe and it was suggested that tai chi was an excellent excersise at it builds balance while maintaining strength.  Others do martial arts - but there's an obvious danger there Shocked Shocked

yes I had heard that about ti chi. but I did read somewhere that it was not god on the knees so I have steered away from that a bit. Anything that is good for balance is good. I have been working on that a lot and now that I dont have so much pain in the knees my balance is coming back Cheesy

well I think they are revisiting what causes the problem they are now thinking that it is the senovial fluid that is the primary protector and if you dont produce much you have more problems that missing cartilage. I only use a light strap on one knee now and I think in another six months I wont be using any. I am keeping them strong through isolation exercises and I believe that has helped alot

what a happy story - to think you were considering knee replacement not long ago.

That is what doctors do... it is their lively hood and if you have private health insurance they are more than happy to encourage you to go down that path.

Certainly a problem - which is why one should always go to a non-surgeon for a second opinion Wink  Still, in many cases it really is the only solution.
