rlyons Posted November 1, 2010 Report Share Posted November 1, 2010 Hi there, I am now attending ballet classes between 3 and 4 times a week. Each class is about an hour and a half. I have been back at ballet for three months now and I am seeing great improvements in my muscle tone and fitness. I also hike about 5 to 6 times a week for an hour each time. I was wondering if I should still be working out at the gym too; lifting weights, etc..? I have been an avid gym goer for about 10 years now but I am seeing better results in firmness with ballet and recently am only going to the gym every couple of weeks. Do ballet dancer go to the gym and if so, is it more about repetition than weight? Will I benefit from going to the gym or hurt myself by bulking up? My goal is to be small, trim, tight and muscular. Any advice is most welcome! Thanks! Quote Link to comment
