Sabrina Bryan Notes Physique Changes on 'DWTS'

It's Week 6 on Dancing with the Stars, which means that the cast has been intensely training for their ballroom routines for nearly three months. While this means fatigue, both mental and physical, it also entails something positive, and Sabrina Bryan is all smiles when reflecting on her hard work.
In the past two weeks, the cast hasn't been shy about the fatigue it's been feeling now halfway into the competition. Even the professional dancers admit to their own aches and pains, and while Cheetah Girls actress Sabrina Bryan feels the physical burden of the competition, she's reaped the benefits of the intense training.
"Yeah, definitely," Bryan responded when asked if she's noticed any changes in her physique since the beginning of the show in September, "in my midsection, in my legs...[and] my arms...Everything is just feeling sore but it's a good sore. It's like when you know you've gone to the gym and you really worked hard and you feel it the next day, you're like, 'Ow! Yeaaah.'"
Avoiding elimination in Week 3 while being in the bottom three on the show's double elimination week, Bryan and her professional dancing partner Louis Van Amstel aren't tremendously confident about heading through to the next week despite garnering last week's highest combined score.
"It helps that we are in the top of the leader board but you're not safe because the scores and the votes from this week are actually now combined with last week's," Van Amstel said. "We don't really know where we stand. We're crossing our fingers."
The competition on Dancing's first All-Stars season has lived up to the hype, and eliminations have subsequently been fair game for any dancing pair. Alongside unpredictable eliminations, the show has also kept the dancers and its viewers on their toes by constantly amending the rules of the game. Although this can frustrate the dancers, Bryan maintains that she enjoys the curveballs.
"It's All-Stars season. What did we expect? Of course they were going to throw something at us," the 28-year-old actress said. "Every curveball they've thrown at us so far ended up making the experience just that much better."
Dancing with the Stars continues tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC.
