Lower body barre burner {Video}

Hellooooooo. How’s the morning going? Hope you’re having a great day so far. This morning we’re off to the park and then planning for a fun staycation we’re doing later this week.

Today I have a new video workout for youuuuuu + some tips for getting more out of your barre workout. 

Lower body barre burner

Here are some of things that help with my own barre workouts + tweaks I commonly notice while teaching:

-Alignment! Most of the time, you’ll want to be in a position where your ears, shoulders, hips and heels are all in one line

-When you have your heels up and knees are bent, keep your knees stacked over your ankles

-Just like with any lunge positions, watch your front knee(s) to make sure it doesn’t extend past your toes

-Keep your core engaged and upper body relaxed

-While you’re holding onto the barre, use it for balance but try to avoid pulling on it

-As always, talk with a doc before making any fitness changes and honor your body. Modify as needed!
Here’s a lower body barre burner I put together for ya! It pairs really nicely with this barre ab burner and last week’s Tabata blast.

Please let me know if you give it a try! It’s only 10 minutes. 🙂

What’s on the workout agenda today? 

Have a wonderful day <3

  1. I was just talking about how I wanted to try barre…as a yoga teacher I’m attracted to it’s versatility and I wonder how many of the moves might be similar to what I do in class…def want to try out a class this weekend!

  2. Barre workouts are the best! I have a great instructor who’s classes I like to go to.

  3. Whew! Sweaty workout. I like using the Smith machine at the gym to do a few Barre variations. I’ll need to try a few of yours!

  4. Catherine says:

    Perfect for sneaking in a quiet, no sweating “in my office on the DL” workout shortie! Is the cardio barre class you teach similar to the tabata barre video you posted?

  5. Are you pure barre certified? I am thinking of getting certified to teach this, but not sure which way to go. Any advice would be really appreciated!

  6. My legs were shaking so hard doing this! Great video!

  7. I’m going to check out this barre workout for sure! I think it will be great for when we are at the beach next week 🙂

  8. Yay! I love barre! Your workout is spot on!

  9. Hi Gina! I came to your site tonight because I tried the MOST AMAZING restaurant in San Diego tonight and I wanted to ask if you’ve been!! It’s called One Door North and it was seriously INCREDIBLE!! You can dine in the cutest little tents and they have a dessert called a s’mores bar that is amazing. If you haven’t been you have to try it out!

  10. I don’t have a bar at home. Any suggestions as a replacement?
