Hey all, I post on the salsa forum and this forum and even though I've decided most of my passion is in salsa, bachata and probably tango soon, I wanted to get a view on how much exercise/training you guys do since a lot of you seem to be experienced amateurs or semi-pro dancers. Here's my exercise routine per week (it varies on which days): 2 hours of strength training 2-3 hours of martial arts/MMA type stuff (incluiding flexibility training) 1-2 hour full body workout 2 hours of group dance lessons 1-2 hours of private dancing instruction 2 hours of social dancing So I'm usually active 10 hours a week to a maximum of 13 hours. Will this hinder or help my dancing? I've noticed that if I try to do an MMA workout, followed by a private lesson followed by group lessons, my brain doesn't function anymore. What are your exercise routines?
