Ballet Exercise – Get a Dancer’s Body, Natalie Portman's Black Swan Workout Routine
Natalie Portman Ballet Workout: Arm Toner Perfect posture and graceful, toned arms are classic qualities of a ballerina's upper body, Bowers says. How to do it: Sit on the mat with your legs extended straight out in front of you and hands just behind your hips, fingers facing out. Lift your hips up off the mat as you stretch the elbows, keeping the chest open and the neck long. Pull the stomach in tight and bend the elbows slightly. Lower and lift your hips by bending and stretching the elbows, keeping the stomach strong and hips elevated the entire time. Repeat 30 times.
