New Training Rules For The Stars
Aug 13 2009, 7:18 AM EDT | Post edited: Aug 13 2009, 7:20 AM EDT
I was just watching an AM talk show and they were discussing the new rules for the stars training. The rules were made in hopes to try to prevent all the injuries that have occurred in recent years of the show. The rules include: 1. No training for more than 5 hours a day, 2. After every 2 hours of training they must take a 1/2 hour break, and 3. They must take one day off a week (no more training for 7 days straight).

I think these new rules are good, but do you think this will impact the quality of performances?

Oh yes it will! They train about 6-7 hours a day for a dance, for 5 days straight until the night they perform, and then perform, which is 30-35 hours of training.

And for training 5 hours a day, for only 4 days, that's only 20 hours of practice. The scores and dances would not be as good as they can be.

I agree with Brandon. Without the rigourous training they have had before, the lack of practice and learning will defenately make their dancing poor. They need to find STRONG people! That is why I like Olympians - like swimmers. They are built to swim, and dance. Do you find this valuable?

I think this will impact their performances as well... I am wondering if the pros will stay away from some of the "tricks"... because they must take alot of time to perfect. Do you find this valuable?

And ... wouldn't the money they win go down because they are not working as much? Do you find this valuable?

I'm not sure....I would think that they are paid by the week/show. I somehow can't see these stars punching a time card for an hourly wage.
