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

    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!

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

    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!

    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. Erin on August 16, 2016 at 1:44 pm

    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!

    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!

    • Fitnessista on August 20, 2016 at 1:24 pm

      AHHHH. ok this is happening! thank you!

      • T on October 18, 2016 at 12:24 pm

        Did you end up trying One Door North? I wanted to see what you thought of it!

        • Fitnessista on October 18, 2016 at 8:50 pm

          not yet!! thank you for reminding me!

  10. Angie on August 20, 2016 at 5:07 am

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

    • Fitnessista on August 20, 2016 at 1:24 pm

      you can use a sturdy piece of furniture, like the back of the couch or the kitchen countertop. just be careful 🙂

      • Angie on August 21, 2016 at 6:24 pm

        thx! shall give it a try!

  11. Jennifer on October 6, 2016 at 10:21 am

  12. Paul Hickman on September 28, 2017 at 9:20 am

    Great way to train your body. Will try this for sure!

  13. Emily on April 8, 2018 at 2:30 am

    Tried it! Felt the burn. Trying to slim down my thigh and hips, I think this a great start. Thanks for sharing.
