Thank you so much for laying this all out Derrick! I see a way to possibly isolate those intrinsically explosive movements in dance so that I can bring them into a proper power session with modifications and rest as prescribed. My justification for this is a greater ease in bridging the gap between the worlds of dance and weight/fitness training.

If we’re already doing 32 consecutive bounding leaps with a 45 second rest, maybe we can make it 6 high quality explosive leaps with a 90 second rest first, instead of going straight into athletic-based power? But this presents it’s own problems in the warm up, so the answer might be no! We’ll see.

I so appreciate your help with reframing this problem set.
