get fit with britt // platform abs

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 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 abs. People are always curious about what I do to get toned abs, and it's definitely a body part I work hard at and am proud of. Pure Barre has a strong focus on core work, and adding in the platform allows you to take your work to the next level. By propping your feet up on the platform, you make an otherwise simple exercise something truly powerful & effective. Make sure to avoid any rocking or momentum, as this will make the work easier & less effective. Repeat the below sequence (5 sets lower then upper curls, 5 sets lower & upper curls) three times for a nice burn!
