This section is all about my favorite drills, but before that…
*Important note: Before every major exercise routine warm up your body for 15 minutes – I do a mix of light cardio and stretches.
These are the topics I’m thinking of adding. Watch for the content!
Front & Side Splits
Core & AB Strengthening Drills –
Ab Ripper X from Tony Horton is one of my favorite Ab/Core strengthening sequences. I like Ab Ripper X a lot because it’s only 15 minutes & it requires no equipment
Back Strengthening Drills – Back strength and flexibility is critical for scorpions and high arabesques.
|Suzanne Martin’s 15 Minute Better Back Workout for Back Strengthening is good for people who like short, easy to follow, and light workouts. It is NOT intense at all. I like doing this set of drills in the morning. I actually leave the DVD in my xbox to play.
The workouts don’t require any equipment with a mix of standing and floor exercises. You may want to use a towel or mat.
Another nice feature of this set of drills is she has 4 different back drill workouts:
Developing the Back, Revitalizing the Back, Energizing the Back
If you like reading and learning about physiology/anatomy, the book explains a lot of that which can be very useful to know. If you just want drills to follow, pop in the DVD!
Vertical Jump Drills – Increasing your vertical height will help with vertical jumps such as Entrechat Quatre
My Vertical Jump Drills – This is a 1 hour workout with a warm up, jump training, upper arm and legs strength training section. You can focus in on just the jump training portion if you don’t want to do arms.
VerticalJumping.com – This website has a long list of vertical jump training exercises and drills with video and explanation.
Please share your drills/videos/tutorials in the comments section!! I’d love to post/link to them.
