Pointe Vs Weight How Heavy Is Too Heavy To Be Dancing En Pointe

Pointe vs. Weight. How heavy is​ too heavy to​ be dancing en pointe?
It is​ possible that a​ dancer who is​ slightly ‘heavier’ does has enough strength to​ hold their weight en pointe,​ however how heavy is​ too heavy to​ dance en pointe? This issue of​ weight is​ very common in​ dancing,​ and often girls get a​ distorted idea of​ what is​ normal when involved in​ dance for a​ long period of​ time. However it​ is​ commonly asked what is​ about the​ ideal weight for pointe work.
It is​ possible to​ be too big for pointe work,​ and bigger girls do need to​ be stronger to​ go en pointe due to​ more pressure going through the​ ankle ligaments. However,​ you do not need to​ be a​ stick either! Les Trocaderos De Monte Carlo there are plenty of​ fully grown men en pointe,​ who I ​ am sure will be vastly heavier than any girl.
Basically,​ it​ depends whether you carry weight as​ muscle or​ as​ fatty tissue,​ and how strong you are. if​ you have done all the​ preparation exercises in​ the​ Perfect Pointe Book,​ and are sure that you are doing all the​ tests correctly and can demonstrate your strength to​ you teacher. I ​ feel it​ is​ reasonable to​ dance on​ pointe.
If you know that you could do with losing a​ little weight,​ do make sure you go about it​ sensibly. Starving is​ not the​ way to​ lose weight,​ and will actually often slow your metabolism down,​ as​ well as​ making you crave the​ foods you are missing. the​ first thing I ​ would do is​ cut out all the​ simple sugars in​ your diet. Sugar,​ sweets,​ white bread,​ crackers,​ potatoes and white rice etc. Replace them with whole grain versions as​ much as​ possible,​ and have fruits to​ satisfy you sweet cravings as​ much as​ possible.
It is​ often really hard at​ first,​ so maybe give yourself one day when you can have a​ small amount of​ your favourite food if​ it​ is​ not in​ the​ good list! This means you won’t be as​ tempted to​ break your good habits on​ other days,​ and before long,​ you will probably not feel like the​ treats anymore!
The next is​ to​ take a​ look at​ your weekly exercise regime. How much cardiovascular exercise do you get each week? According to​ the​ Heart Society Guidelines,​ at​ least 30 mins of​ aerobic activity,​ three times per week is​ essential for a​ healthy heart,​ and this is​ a​ good level to​ have as​ a​ baseline. When we​ are dancing,​ it​ is​ often not sustained aerobic work although it​ can be very tiring so maybe try to​ include some swimming,​ brisk walking or​ jogging to​ keep you heart rate up for the​ 30 mins,​ three times a​ week.
Good things take time,​ but do not get discouraged! This is​ a​ very health practice to​ get into for the​ rest of​ your life,​ and I ​ promise that you will feel the​ benefits before long. Keep up a​ good intake of​ fresh fruits,​ vegetables and lean protein eggs,​ tofu,​ fish,​ red meat and or​ chicken and remember to​ drink loads of​ water to​ keep yourself hydrated!
