Perfect Port de Bras is a 15-minute, no-impact workout that works your arms, chest, and back for sleek, supportive arms during dance (though it’s fine for non-dancers as well!). All you need is a little space and a resistance band or two, though you could make it work using a pair of dumbbells as well.

Sorry for the low quality; people asked for the video no matter the quality. I’d like to make a high-quality video of this workout once I have the means.

June includes a special calendar for people participating in the Pull-Up Challenge to keep you from overtraining!

The directions are simple: find the current date on the calendar, see what workout(s) it asks for, and pick one from each section listed for that date. For example, if today it says “Arms” and “General,” I’d find an arm workout and a general workout to do today.

If you’d like to write about your experiences during the month or see how others are doing, please use the tag “BoP: June”. By all using this tag, we can see what others are doing during the month and send others encouragement along the way. Let’s all support each other on our journeys! (If you’re not on Tumblr but still use these calendars, feel free to update us on the Back On Pointe Facebook Page or the Back On Pointe Fitocracy Group!)

During the month, remember that you should take as many rest days as you need, modify any workouts that you cannot do, stay hydrated, get more low-intensity cardio, and eat well.

Have fun!

p.s. Any of the calendars can be modified. If you are training for a half-marathon, feel free to count that as your cardio on cardio days. If you’re sore in the arms from helping a friend move, substitute a butt workout instead. It’s all about you!
