Welcome back to Get Fit with Britt! I'm going to be posting some demos of my fave exercises taught at Pure Barre Williamsburg, with the help of their awesome instructors. Pure Barre is a fast, effective, and most importantly, safe way to change your body, and follows a technique that's high-intensity, but low impact to protect your joints! Thanks to Pure Barre, I have been able to build long, lean (not bulky!) muscles while tapering everything in & lifting it up! For this series, we will pick a particular move, explain the focus area and correct form, then demonstrate it so you can practice at home! That way, if/when you come to the studio yourself, you'll be rocking the moves & way ahead of the game ;) These exercises are also a great way to get fit at home or on-the-go! I find myself regularly using Pure Barre exercises during my hotel room workouts. Additionally, you can get all the outfits I'm wearing at the Pure Barre Williamsburg studio, so definitely go by if you're looking for some fun, new workout gear! Come & join me, get that healthy & strong body you've always wanted- come Get Fit with Britt!
Today's exercise focuses on your butt! This pretzel position may look a bit funny, but trust me when I tell you this move burns out your tush like crazy! The small, subtle movements really target your outer seat, helping to lift and tone throughout, adding nice definition to your glutes. Be sure to remain upright and try not to lean too far over to the side, and keep your leg out at a 90 degree angle from your hip - this will increase the challenge and you'll see the results. Do 10 repetitions of each movement, and repeat the sequence three times to maximize the burn!
