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. 🙂

Resistance band loop leg workout

(that’s a mouthful, eh?) The resistance band loop is one of my favorite barre tools. It looks so innocent, but it BURNs.

Once […]
