Ballet requires a very high level of lower body muscle strength, stamina, and flexibility. Dancers need a significant amount of core strength to stabilize the body during pirouettes and arabesques, and explosive power to execute sautés and jetés. Dominating a considerable flexibility and extensive range of motion, especially in the back, hips and ankles is also required.
Unfortunately, all these requirements are the reason why injury is a ghost that’s always haunting ballet dancers. Injuries are prevalent for a variety of reasons, but biomechanical imbalances, including poor core strength and weak eccentric leg muscles are partly to blame.
Regular stretching helps, but you will always find the best solution by working on the core of the problem. Strengthening your muscles instead of just stretching them is the most effective solution because it prevents injury from happening in the first place.
The Ballet Muscle Conditioner is a bodybuilding strap that helps you properly develop the musculature of the abs, quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, lumbar, dorsal and cervical muscles using eccentric force; in other words, it strengthens the muscle through the stretching of its fibers.
Using the BMC to perform eccentric muscle stretching exercises will help you in de-contracting and gaining flexibility. Because the contraction you make with the BMC is mainly eccentric, it creates a greater muscular tension that results in more muscular strength.
This product is commonly used by professional athletes that require a high muscular demand and need to prevent injuries by any means. We have adapted many exercises for the BMC targeting the workout of key muscles and strengthening them, in order for the ballet dancer to fully develop their maximum artistic potential.
The BMC is made of premium materials. It is comfortable and soft to the touch, yet firm and sturdy. The BMC strap offers optimal resistance and great stability, never losing its shape, and won't rip or fray. It can hold up 300 lbs.
