7-minute barre squat burner

“Let’s squat,” she said.

“It will be fun!” she said.

Barre squat burner

See the look on my face above. It’s the burn face haha. 

Oh friends, do I have a workout for you. This is a barre squat burner, and is 7 minutes of pure, burning, fiery quad glory. You will definitely feel this in your inner and outer thighs, which can be a little tricky to target. For this workout, we’ll do some variations of my favorite barre squats, with lots of pulsing and tempo changes to keep things exciting. This is your workout challenge for the day! Let me know how it goes in the comments. 🙂 

As always, check with a doc before making any fitness changes. Honor your body and modify as needed.




Fabletics tops  1 of 1 2

outfit c/o Fabletics. I’m obsessed with the back of the shirt and the fun print of the leggings!

Time to drop it like a squat 🙂 What’s your favorite squat variation?



Want to combine this into a full workout? Try it with this barre strength, this barre blast, and this plank burner

      thanks girl!

  9. Molly D on March 19, 2015 at 3:45 pm

    Love the outfit. Do you find Fabletics quality to hold up? I’m an Athleta snob (especially their revelation tights for compression). No sure how Fabletics measures up.

    • Fitnessista on March 19, 2015 at 4:29 pm

      i was very surprised by the quality, especially for the price. i like fabletics for lifting weights and barre. for running or crazy cardio classes, i wear my lulu shorts or compression tights

  10. Jessie on March 19, 2015 at 4:57 pm

    Thanks for the workout! Love your barre videos! I’ve been sick, so I can’t wait to get back into working out again

  11. Fiona @ Get Fit Fiona on March 19, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    Barre is one of my favorite workouts at the moment. I’ll have to do this workout over the weekend.

  12. Erin @ Her Heartland Soul on March 19, 2015 at 7:51 pm

    I need to try this!

  13. Ashley on March 19, 2015 at 8:30 pm

    Your face in the first was so good! haha! Serious burn, I’m sure! I can’t wait to try this! <3

  14. Lindsey on March 20, 2015 at 4:02 am

    I love these workouts! They have been a staple in my routine throughout my entire pregnancy! Bonus: my toddler loves to watch them too, so she stays entertained 🙂

  15. Cara's Healthy Cravings on March 20, 2015 at 4:28 am

    Looking forward to trying this out over the weekend! I always love your vids, so thanks for making the effort to make new and awesome ones so frequently 🙂

  16. Eveline on March 20, 2015 at 6:47 am

    Ouch! I did this yesterday and I can stil feel it… I guess that’s a good thing 😉 Thanks for sharing!

  17. Jocelyn @ Peace Love Nutrition on March 20, 2015 at 8:32 am

    My legs are burning after that! Great quick in-between emails (luckily I’m working from home today!) workout

  18. alexandra rodriguez on March 20, 2015 at 9:36 am

    The burner is just what I need! Is there a list of moves for it? I can never watch any of the videos in my gym because the signal is so bad and there’s no wifi 🙁

  19. kristin | W [H] A T C H on March 20, 2015 at 11:06 am

    oh this looks like a good one! and that is such a cute shirt.

  20. Zoe on March 20, 2015 at 12:22 pm

    Hi Gina! I love love your blog and check it everyday. I’m currently 18 weeks pregnant. Could you recommend some 2nd and 3rd trimester prenatal workouts? I feel like I’m a moderately physical person, but I want to keep working out for delivery and post partum recovery’s sake.

  21. Christine James on March 20, 2015 at 6:54 pm

    I just tried that video and it was sooo good (and painful!) Thanks so much for putting it together. I love your workout videos!

  22. masala girl on March 21, 2015 at 2:58 pm

  23. Lori S H on March 23, 2015 at 2:28 am

  24. Lisa on September 1, 2015 at 10:44 am

    Hi Gina – thank you for the squat challenge – today’s was just enough and now I move on to today’s workout! Looking forward to working out with you every day this month. Happy Tuesday! Lisa
