Hi friends! Happy almost-Friday! Hope you’re having a lovely morning. I’m off on an adventure today and am so excited to post the details. I’ll get to see snow (the kind that sticks to the ground haha) for the first time in years. I am wholly unprepared for the realness that’s headed my way haha.
In the meantime, here’s a barre ab workout I put together for ya!
I feel like the ab/core section in barre classes is not like pizza: It’s either OH YES I FEEL THE BURN, or meh. Since the movements tend to be within a smaller range of motion, you have to make sure that your posture and alignment is on par (I almost said “on fleek” there but I’m 30).
Here’s a 10-minute video I put together featuring some of my very favorite moves! We work in high hold with some oblique twists, move onto the floor for figure 4 crunches, leg lifts, and finally, into a prone position for low back work. This 10-minute video will work every abdominal muscle and also helps to strengthen the low back, which is a critical component of our core. As always, modify as needed and check with a doc before making any fitness changes.
Let me know if you give a it a try! See you soon.
