Dancers, coaches and parents,

Seeking some insight on peaking performance for state? Wondering what best practices are for an off-season?  

For the first part of the month, let’s keep building on our January tips for peak performance. In the second half, let’s uncover the off-season secrets of the pros. The first two weeks make a difference!

Each week on MN Dance News social media channels, our friends at Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO) will share tips on nutrition, mindset, conditioning and practice modification to help you reach that peak and make the most of your off-season immediately.

Tip #3: Decrease general conditioning

At the peak points of the season, focus should be skill-specific. We can’t just keep adding more, as the body will break. Decrease your general conditioning time to make time for specific skill work.
