Raising the Barre: A Ballet Body Workout

Ballerinas don’t just have tight buns on their heads!

Sylvie Guillem, ballet workout, how to get a dancer's body


In my last two posts, I’ve described just how hard dancers work for their bodies. I’m not one of these trainers who claim to have the magic formula known as  the diet and exercise plan that will give you the perfect body in only twenty minutes a day!  It takes time, commitment, and desire.

There is no replacement for the repetition, genetic predisposition, and physical dedication that ballerinas have. However, we can transform our bodies by applying these principles to our own training.  Even though I won’t promise you that by doing these exercises you’ll look like Sylvie Guillem does in this pic,  I can promise you that you’ll hold your head higher and feel stronger in your own daily routine.

Read on for a workout that will keep you on your toes at the gym!

Are You Skinny-FIT or Skinny-FAT?

Who would you rather look like?

Tori Spelling or Jessica Biel ? Paris Hilton or Gwyneth Paltrow?  Giuliana Rancic or Jennifer Aniston?

While all of these women are beautiful and thin, there’s a big difference between skin-and-bones and long-and lean. Ladies, skinny does not equal healthy!
