Personally, there is no greater feeling than noticing how much I have been crushing my workouts.I love to discover new exercises.
I have heard barre classes but I was never insterested in. I tried pilates and yoga and nowadays I am interested in Barre workouts. It is a balled inspired class. When I was little, I used to go to ballet course but honestly I never liked it. Ballet wants disipline and my ballet teacher was very rough. I wasn’t flexible enough and I didn’t continue to go to the course.
When I was at university, I started to go to gym and take yoga and pilates lessons. I also didn’t like it because everyone was very flexible but I wasn’t flexible even for a little bit. When I was looking the other people, I was feeling bad. I was thinking that you have to be born flexible. Later, thanks to my yoga teacher I figured out that yes, some people are naturally more flexible than others but that doesn’t mean that I will never be like them. Flexibility needs work and determination is key for this.
Taking a barre class is certainly be intimidating for me but I started to try a few exercises. I did a lot of research about barre workouts and I would like to share with you.
The barre method uses your own body weight for focus and resistance. It helps to strenghten of core muscles and create an appearance of an lean body. You only need a mat and mounted bar.
