Anyone had a look at this book? i picked it up ages ago but had forgotten all about it! Roll Eyes found it tonight and started with what they call their "max abs" workout and my god can you feel it! The books made by the master in chief of the NYC ballet company, and uses aspects of their everyday warm - up regime in an exercise form. Great for dancers, as all the exercises are aimed at the core muscles and major muscle areas, exactly what us dancers need!.

Anyway thought i'd just share it with you guys as the exercise section seems to be a little neglected, even though i think a dancers exercise regime is pretty up there in importance !!

Indeed zac.  I really need some good excercises - ideally that I can do while writing!

Is the "max abs" workout mostly somach crunches?

yeah that one specifically isolates each set of ab muscles and builds them up, but there are plenty of different exercises in the book and gives you a few ideas throughout as to short programs etc.

It's been years, but this is a good reminder to check out the DVD again...I remember little of it, but I do remember it being very challenging...
