Before our first barre class, we wondered if those tiny movements on tiptoe would really benefit our body. But as soon as we stepped foot in the studio, we quickly realized just how crazy-hard those little pulses can be.
Here's the good news: There's no need to hit up (or pay for) an actual barre class to feel the burn. All you need is this 40-minute total-body barre workout from that you can do in your own living room. In this video, you'll follow instructor Paola Di Lanzo through a series of ballet-inspired moves, Pilates exercises, and functional training movements to strengthen muscles from head to toe.
You’ll need a few pieces of equipment—like light dumbbells, a resistance band, a small ball, and an exercise mat—so once you’ve gathered your supplies, just press play below to plie your way to a stronger body.
