Do you think Yuuri and Yuri exercise together? Or are they to different, like Yuri does ballet for exercise and Yuuri does cardio? Or maybe Yuuri specifically avoids exercising with Yuri cause he gets to competitive? (this is so random I'm sorry)
It’s not random! I love this question, actually.
They probably do both ballet and regular workouts to keep in competitive shape. It’s one of the reasons I’m so incredibly proud of Yuri in the beginning for losing all that weight and preparing his body for the season (and he doesn’t get nearly enough credit for it). I’m a lot like Yuri in that even when I was dancing competitively, I still had to work out in the gym at least three times a week because I gain weight
extremely easily and, even when eating correctly, it’s hard to maintain. People like us (meaning me in real life and Yuri in the series) don’t have a choice if we need our bodies to be in optimum training/performance condition. Of course, I wasn’t at a level of dance equivalent to what his is in skating, but the principle’s the same.
Yurio likely does both as well. I can’t really speak for skaters, but a lot of professional dancers (not all) at least do light cardio, yoga/pilates, etc. a couple times a week on the side. I heard in an ice dancing pair’s interview that they went to the gym about three times a week outside of usual training while they were competing. I assume that’s fairly standard. I also strongly suspect Yurio does some kind of flexibility training (outside of his usual ballet training).
It’s highly possible they train together (or at least in the same place/at the same time) with Yuri being in Russia whether it’s intentional or not. It’s kind of fun to think about.
