The Firebird Leap is a skill that dancers use regularly. The video below is of a group of dancers working to improve their Firebird Leap using Myosource Kinetic Bands
Why Use Myosource Kinetic Bands to work on your Firebird Leap? Myosource Kinetic Bands allow dancers to add resistance to each movement, which causes the muscles to work through the tension to build strength and power. The bands do not limit or restrict any of their movements therefore they can be used for all of your dance drills and training.
As shown in the video above, dancers will warm-up Myosource Kinetic Bands before performing their firebird leap. Stretching and warming up the muscles allows the muscles to expand their elasticity during their workout, which will result in greater range of motion. This will also help prepare the muscles to prevent injury.
During your firebird leaps, make sure that you are arching your back while pushing your hips forward to maintain proper form and technique. Proper form and technique is essential in training for the beauty of the skill.
After stretching and warming up using Myosource Kinetic Bands your legs will feel lightweight and explosive. This is when you will go into a set of firebird leaps with the bands on. The Kinetic Bands help to build strength in the legs, hips and core, while also improving balance to help with the technique and landing.
Next, complete an unresisted set of firebird leaps and feel the difference in your legs, hips, thighs, and core. The combination of using Myosource Kinetic Bands and using proper technique and form will help you improve all your dance skills. Alternate between a set of firebird leaps with resistance and a set of firebird leaps without resistance. You will see and feel the difference.
