Barre at the Beach: Mat Work

Hi all!  Happy Wednesday.  Btw, did you know yesterday was International Woman’s Day?  I hope you did something nice for a woman in you life!

Barre at the Beach- Mat Work

Do you remember waaaaay back when I posted Barre at the Beach: Standing Barre, well I completely forgot about part 2–Barre at the Beach: Mat Work!  What was I thinking!?  Luckily I was scrolling through my photos and remembered!  This one is a goodie!  All you need is a mat (beach is optional!).

No Equipment Barre Workout {New Year Reset Challenge}

This no equipment barre workout is the perfect at-home workout.  All you need is your own bodyweight!

Hello!  How are you?  This week has been a whirlwind and I can’t believe it is already Thursday!  I went from lying on the couch not leaving the house for a week when I was sick to full speed ahead with playdates, pilates classes, workouts, lunches, coffees and more.  How has your week been?

As promised!  Two workouts in one week!  This one is a no equipment barre workout and I promise you will love it.

No Equipment Barre Workout

I love this workout so much because you really truly can do it anywhere (even by the pool!) and it is a great burner.  I’ve given you suggested reps for each exercise but if you are really looking to up the burn factor, you can do this workout a second time!

HIIT the Barre™ {New Year Reset Challenge}

This HIIT the Barre workout combines High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) with traditional barre moves for an amped up barre workout. Expect to blast calories while toning up your whole body.

As promised!  This is workout 1 this week due to last week’s sickness.  I love this one because while I often find that some barre workouts can provide good cardio benefits, I would definitely never classify a barre class as a “cardio” class.  This HIIT the Barre workout is definitely cardio.  It combines High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) with traditional barre moves.  So although most barre workouts are low-impact, this one actually adds a bit of impact to rev the heart rate up and get in that cardio.  It is tough!

Upper & Lower Body Combo Workout {New Year Reset Challenge}

This Upper & Lower Body Combo Workout is the first workout in the New Year Reset Challenge!  It will work your upper and lower body for a quick, calorie-blasting, super-toning session.

Hello hello!  How is the beginning of the new year going for you?  First week back is always tough so I hope you are easing in!  I kind of miss being able to just do whatever I want all day with no schedule but at the same time, I also like getting back into the swing of things… is that weird?  

As promised, I’ve got Workout No. 1 as part of the New Year Reset Challenge.  I think you are going to love this one!  It’s an Upper & Lower Body Combo Workout.  That’s a mouthful to say you are working your arms, your legs and your butt at the same time for one super efficient workout.  You’ll not only tone your arms and legs but you’ll also feel that heart rate climb as you exert effort at both ends of the spectrum.

Print out the all-in-one workout and take it with you to the gym, check out the gifs for a sneak peek on how to do the movements or watch the mini-workout video for guided instruction.  Choose your weapon, grab some medium heavy weights (I used 5lbs) and get going!
