Get ready to #stopdropandbettyrock with this high-intensity, low-impact, ballet-inspired workout! This Total Body Barre Sculpt workout actually has some great benefits to your body that go beyond just toning your muscles.
Here are 5 benefits you’ll get from doing this workout today:
ONE: Stretching and strengthening promotes lean, supple muscle tissue and creates more space around the joints – great for mobility, muscle health and body awareness.
TWO: My barre workouts always give a special emphasis to the booty and legs and this one is no exception. I love strengthening that area of my body and I know from reading your comments that you do too! Enjoy toning and sculpting your derriere with me in this fun routine!
THREE: Speaking of the backside of your body, workouts like this strengthen the posterior chain, which helps us have better alignment and posture. So you’re helping yourself balance key muscle groups and integrate them into your movements for better overall stability.
FOUR: Combining moves together into complexes or challenging ourselves with cross-body patterns strengthens neural pathways in the brain, keeping us sharp and on our game. So when you’re struggling to figure something out or make a mistake, be happy! That’s you upgrading your brain by teaching it something new.
FIVE: Because you’ll need to be focused on your body while you’re doing this workout, you’ll be more present to the moment. Anytime we’re tuned into our body this way and super present is a win amidst the chaos of our busy lives, and can really reduce stress.
You’ll want a chair back or countertop handy for balance, and a few light weights or water bottles for resistance. You are here, you are capable, and you are going to rock this workout!
