What are some positions that men taking adult ballet class for the first have a tough time doing?

Had a tough time doing certain positions when I started taking adult ballet class.

I can only speak for myself, but getting a high arabesque and back attitude were (and still are) difficult for me. So is balancing in releve passe. Working hard on calf and quad strength have helped. Even with years of running and weight lifting, staying up on one leg in releve takes everything I've got. Holding turnout can be difficult at first, too, since those are "new" muscles you are probably targeting for the first time.
