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.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Barre Workout

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
