Building Strength For Male Dancers
For male dancers, testing the limits of strength training makes men more adaptable to each partner as well as help deliver powerful movements on stage. You don’t need a personal trainer or gym to build strength. Ben Bigler shares a few of his favorite exercises you can incorporate into your daily routine.
Sit on the floor with your knees up. Incline your upper body back to make a 160 degree angle, or just 5 inches from the floor. Hold this for 4 minutes rocking side to side (engaging those obliques) and switching up your arm placement. Arms a la seconde, in fifth or touching your upper back. Maintain it, keep your stomach contracted, breathe, and SMILE!
