The “Injured Dancer” is back! I’m Miami City Ballet dancer Rebecca King Ferraro, and as I have been posting on the DanceWear Corner blog for the past few months, I am recovering from ankle surgery. Today I wanted to share with you some of my workout routine that I have been working on, “Injury Recovery for Dancers: Abs Part II.” Check out part I here. When you are unable to walk, it can make exercising a real challenge, so you need to get creative! This series of exercises is great if you are injured, deal with chronic ankle or knee pain, or want a quick and simple warm up.
Check out the video below where I demonstrate one of my ab workout series. The most important tip is to keep your abs engaged the entire time so that your upper body does not move with your legs.
