Barre is a workout that focuses on the strengthening, lengthening and toning of the entire body.
So, Why Barre?
Barre makes a significant difference in a few areas of the body as it is a workout that makes use of micro movements that exercise parts of the body that are so rarely exercised and utilized. Here are a few areas that Barre is beneficial towards:
- Flexibility. You will become more flexible whether you like it or not with this workout. There is a large focus on lengthening the muscles as you strengthen them for a leaner look. You don’t have to be flexible to begin. There is plenty of room for improvement throughout the process.
- Strengthening All Muscle Groups. Barre will ensure that you are not only targeting one single muscle group. If the aim of an exercise is to work your upper arms, you will work the front, back and side of the entire arm. You are using muscles that are often underused.
- Core. And do you know what a strong core means? Good posture and therefore a significant relief from back pain. Barre requires that your core is engaged throughout the workout, even during exercises that are focusing on core specifically.
