Ballet Leg Workout

Even though I’ve been quite busy over the past few weeks with an abundance of new clients, I still found some time to get some video work done for all of my blog followers. My latest creation is an instructional video showing 4 different variations of a Ballet Leg sequence. All you need to perform these movements is the back of a chair, couch or railing.

You don’t have to be a Dancer to have Ballet Legs! Enjoy!

Best in Health,

  1. Is this beneficial to dancers as well? If so, should dancers do the exercises turned out?

    • Erika,

      These exercises are quite beneficial for dancers. As dancers we work turned out all day long. To work on strengthening your weaknesses you need to perform these exercises in the parallel or turned-in, contrary to what you may think.
      Doing this exercise turned-out will only tire out muscles that have already been worked in ballet class, thus making your legs fatigued and more susceptible to injury.

  2. Excellent work out! So glad I found this… nice easy to follow steps. I found it quite hard to not bend my body the opposite way than the way I was streaching… perhaps stronger core muscles would help with this? But my bum and legs feel great. It’s not too time consuming and you can do it anywhere (I did so in my kitchen). Thank you for sharing Nikol.
