Did you know that lack of endurance is a leading cause of injuries in athletes?
Improve your stamina in as little as 20 minutes!
HIIT training is an excellent way for dancers to increase their endurance. There are many studies that outline the effectiveness of this method. HIIT training is also extremely similar to the way dancers perform. Dancers execute short bursts of high intensity activity. Dance classes are structured for 30 seconds-2 minute heart pumping combinations followed by a rest for corrections, waiting for the next group, & learning the next combo. In a 2 hour ballet, dancers perform short variations with breaks & intermissions.
Dancers are sprinters!
