Am I Doing Enough At Home?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

With the current situation, I am trying to keep improving as much as possible while at home, and hope to put together an adequate home training plan. I am 17 years old, and don’t have a marley floor or gym equipment. Below is roughly what I have been doing at home. Is it acceptable, or do you have any suggestions on what more I should be doing?

Monday

• 2 hr ballet class, 1 hr second ballet class, 1 hr Pilates, 15 min stretching 

Tuesday 

• 2 hr ballet class, 1 hr conditioning, 15 min jump rope, 15 min stretching 

Wednesday

• 2 hr ballet class, 30 min pointe class, 1 hr Progressing Ballet Technique class (conditioning), 15 min stretching 

Thursday

• 2 hr ballet class, 1 hr conditioning, 15 min jump rope, 15 min stretching 

Friday

• 2 hr ballet class, 1 hr second ballet class, 1 hr Pilates, 15 min stretching 

Saturday 

• 2 hr ballet class, 30 min pointe class, 15 min stretching 

 

Thank you so much!

Hi there Esmeralda!  I apologize that it took so long to get back to you.  

As to your training plan, it does depend on the type of class you're doing.  Is it your own class or perhaps a Youtube class that you're following along with, or is it a Zoom class with feedback?  The feedback part is crucial, otherwise you may be training muscle memory incorrectly.  If it is a Zoom class, your plan sounds fine. 

Also just want to mention--without proper flooring, jumping and pointework should be limited, or you can cause an injury.
