Ballet dancers seem to have it all – they’re strong, they’re flexible, they’re lean and even the tiniest dancers appear taller than they really are! The Ballet Butt n' Barre™ workout is designed and created by Carly incoporating ballet moves and exercises in to your training regime - your posture and alignment will improve and you’ll strengthen your core and tone your butt and legs. Muscles elongate and tone rather than pump up and shorten. Co-ordination is enhanced and it’s a fun and challenging way to stay in shape. By adding some cardio on the days you’re not in the studio practicing this technique – The Ballet Butt n' Barre™ will aid weight loss and is an all-round toning and conditioning discipline.
Remember when you execute these exercises, allow the breath to move freely in and out through the nose. Be aware of your posture at all times and keep the lift of the abdominals throughout all routines. Spend 5 minutes at the beginning of your workout to warm up by either gently freestyle dancing, skipping and with active/dynamic stretches. At the end of the exercises, cool down by taking a few deep breaths standing and rolling down and up through the spine along with static stretches. Remember to take time to stretch out the hamstrings, the quadriceps and the glutes to lengthen the muscles and prevent injury.
The Ballet Butt n' Barre™ workout is a routine incorporating ballet moves, core exercises and butt and leg exercises. By isolating the glutes your butt will become firm and lifted. Your core will be working throughout the routines and your legs will gain flexibility, tone and lengthen. Your legs are the largest muscle group in the body, therefore the more you train and tone a large muscle group, the faster your metabolism will burn the fat we store in the body. If you want a different kind of workout then the Ballet Butt n' Barre™ workout is the one for you!
Carly teaches this technique in Masterclasses at The Laboratory Spa & Health Club and soon to be teaching at Champney's Health Farms in 2014. If you want a one-to-one with Carly and Ballet Butt n'Barre™ then get in touch.
