Hey friends! Thank you so much for all your support with the launch of my new e-book, HIIT the Barre™! I’m super excited about it! Because you have been such amazing loyal readers for so long, I wanted to give you a special sneak peek of the book! So today we are talking about HIIT the Barre: The Workout!
So, what exactly is HIIT the Barre™? To put it simply, it is a combination of cardio plus toning. I focus on using High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) plus barre moves to get your heart rate up, blast fat and tone your muscles. It is a total body workout and I’m kind of obsessed!
The book features a new daily workout that is only 30 minutes in length. There are three types of workouts: Center (in the center of the room with no equipment, just sneakers), Barre (at your ballet “barre” or a kitchen chair with no shoes) and on the Mat. Each workout uses just 9 moves– 3 HIIT moves and 6 barre moves. It is so easy to follow!
Today I’ll give you a little sneak peek of one of the workouts: Awesome Assets! For this workout you will need a sturdy piece of furniture, such as a kitchen chair, to act as your ballet barre. You will also need a stopwatch. Let’s get started!
Before beginning this workout, warm up for 5 minutes to get your heart rate going. We have a set warm up in the book but for this workout, practice any warm up you like!
