How hard is it on your body to breakdance?

Getting in Shape To Break

A little bit of advice if you want to try your hand at breakdancing: get in shape! Breakdancers are usually in extremely good physical condition. In order to pull off many of the truly dazzling moves in this style of dance, your body needs to be in top condition. You need a strong sense of balance, excellent hand strength, and some serious endurance.

Take a minute to watch breakdance crews out of New York and you will see the level of endurance they need for their routines. You are going to see a lot of strong arms and legs and flat stomachs.

So start by getting in some regular exercise. Learn the moves as you go, but it is important to take care of your body as well. Try strength and conditioning exercises like crunches, push-ups and pull-ups, squats and leg lifts. These exercises are all designed to work areas of the body that you will be relying on the most when break dancing.

Take a look at some breakdancing videos and you can get an idea of what it is going to be like and what kinds of muscles you are going to need to focus on. You don't have to be a big body builder, but you need to be in good shape at least.
