As many of you know, I am a group fitness instructor, but I also love to lift heavy. Once upon a time I took ballet and my director is asking me to brush up on my ballet skills. My problem is that I lack muscular endurance in my upper body. Does anyone have any suggestions to build that up while still getting my lifting in? Thanks!
Good answers. Interesting. I am an advocate of elastic resistance for upper body strength conditioning. Extension, flexion, abduction, adduction, don’t forget internal and external rotation. The elasticity of the resistance band allows you to keep moving, even though it is against resistance. I had a coach when I was nordic ski racing who emphasized fluidity. Keep moving smooth.
