This beginner barre workout is awesome and you can totally do it from home! ohsweetbasil.com exercise

Since starting at Cardio Barre I have received so many emails about how you all would love to try it but you’re not a dancer or you’re nervous about what they do, so with the help of Luke Isley and Cardio Barre we bring you a beginner barre workout that you can do from home and get a little idea of just how awesome the class is and why you should totally start. This is just a little glimpse at the class, but it’s actually still an awesome workout! I love everything that these ladies have taught me and it is seriously one of my favorite workouts.

We’ve placed all of the images in one graphic so that as you get used to the workout you can just look at the photo and not have to read anything.

1.Front Knee Lift

Stand straight and tall at the counter and lightly touch it using one hand. Lift right knee directly in the front up and down while your arm lifts up and down.

Elbow and knee almost touch then extend arm to straight up as the leg lowers.

Complete 32 reps and switch sides. 

2.Extended Barre Fly

Still standing at the counter come down into a flat back with knees slightly bent. Reach arm and leg out at the same time as shown in the photo.  Touch toe out to the

side then pull the leg and arm back in toward your supporting foot. Engage glute. Complete 32 reps and switch sides.

3. Over the counter Push Ups

Walk your feet out at an angle and lift up onto your toes. Keeping your hands on the counter, lower down to bring your chin over the counter and push back out. Complete 20 reps.

4. Lower Back Lift

Lay flat on the floor, point your toes and open the legs hip width apart. Place your hands behind the back keeping your eyes looking down to the floor, lift and lower the upper body.  Plant legs on floor and squeeze the glutes through the entire move. Complete 32 reps.

5. Bicycle Crunch

Laying flat on your back with your belly button pulled into your spine, place your hands behind your head and keep the elbows open. Lift the shoulders up off of the mat and bring the feet off of the ground. Twist left elbow to right knee by pulling the right knee in, crunching forward, and stretching the left leg out, meeting the tow to the knee. Repeat the other direction for one rep. Complete 32 reps.

6. Releves

Standing at the counter with a light touch on the counter, place your feet in first position with heels touching and toes turned out. Gently lift and lower the heels staying controlled at all times. Complete 16 reps. Now turn your feet parallel and lift and lower for another 16 reps. Finally turn back out into first position again and complete your last 16 reps.

7. Butt Blasters

Place your forearms on the floor and come up onto your knees. Do not tuck the chin into your chest.

Lift the right leg, heel up towards the ceiling with a flexed foot and lift

and lower the leg back down.  Engage glutes. Complete 64 reps and switch sides.

8. Flexed Leg Lift

Laying on your side in an L shape, engage the outer thigh by lifting the leg, flexing the foot, and lift and lower leg a few inches, never touching down to the floor.  Press the palm of the hand into the floor and rest the head in the hand. Complete 32 reps and switch sides.
