get fit with britt // outer seat

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 (side seat, outer seat- whatever you want to call it)! While you relax your upper body on top of the barre, your lower half gets a super intense workout, all from tiny up & down movements in your leg. Create this movement by squeezing your seat as opposed to just lifting your leg- that way the muscle groups in your butt are isolated and you'll really feel the burn there. The small, subtle movements really target your outer seat, helping to lift and tone throughout. Be sure to keep your shoulders relaxed, abs pulled in, and hips tucked under to see the best results. Repeat three sets of ten on each leg.
