If you follow fitness trends, you’ll know that the Bar Method is one of the hottest workouts around. According to the site, the Method “integrates the fat burning format of interval training, the muscle shaping technique of isometrics, the elongating principles of dance conditioning, and the science of physical therapy to create a revolutionary new workout that quickly and safely reshapes your entire body”.
If you’re unfamiliar, the Method is based on ballet/dance training, and uses a ballet bar as a tool to tighten & tone you like a dancer. Dancer muscles tend to be on the longer, leaner and more toned side of things for their body type (you can be any kind of body type to dance) because of the style of the movement.
It’s a fabulous mix of strength, flexibility, agility & power.
“I’m just a normal girl. I love my body. I think it’s beautiful.”
