30 Minute At Home Barre Workout (Video)
This total body barre workout combines some of my favorite elements of barre: leg shaking series, glute burn, core work, balance challenges, strength, and endurance work. It’s strictly bodyweight exercises, so you can do this one anywhere! Barre is easy to modify for beginners and low-impact; it was one of my go-to workouts during pregnancy. As always, check with a doctor before making any fitness changes and honor your body. Modify as needed!
What is barre?
Barre is a low-impact workout that fuses elements of ballet, Pilates, yoga, and dance. You’ll work the muscle groups of your entire body with an emphasis on legs, glutes, and abs. Barre is low-impact, but can be high intensity. The beauty about barre is that you can adjust the intensity depending on participants’ fitness levels and how they’re feeling. There are always different ways to add or remove extra stressors, like heavier weights, bands, or other equipment. It tends to be lower on the cardio side, but you’ll find that many of the exercises will still increase your heart rate and make you sweat. It’s an effective workout option, and one of my very faves, that you can do at a studio, gym, or at home. You can read my blog post all about barre here!
What equipment do I need for barre?
Typically, barre workouts use a variety of tools, from bands, loop bands, balls, light dumbbells, and gliding discs. You don’t need any equipment for this particular barre workout – just your own bodyweight, a bottle of water, and an exercise mat.
What do I wear for barre class?
I typically recommend wearing leggings and a tank top or sports bra. These are my favorite leggings for barre!
