    Hey I was wondering if there was excercises to get faster arm movements

    My dancing style is very sharp and hard hitting and I was wondering how I can get faster quicker stronger there any excercises I can do.............

    I know there is excercises for boxers to get faster punches so I thought there might be excercises to get faster arms

    How about working on leading? I've discovered that the better I get at leading the easier it is to execute faster and more complex moves. I don't really need arm strength and speed for that.

    Okay let me ask for clarification as well. Are you talking of partner dancing? In partner dancing how you guide your partner through moves is very important. That's what I'm referring to when I talk of leading.

    What exactly do you mean by faster arm movements? Are we talking about freestyle dancing? I'm not sure why you would desire stronger arms for that... :?

    You also might want to try posting this question in our sister forum, and use the advice that you get there.

    Hey Monsour-

    Have you checked the Fitness Forums?

    My own understanding of speed and strength is that they're different fitness goals. If speed is your key, you want to do light lifting and a lot of reps. For strength, heavier lifting and fewer reps.
