In the high heat of summer it’s good to have a go-to workout that can be done indoors.
Colleen Ketchum, creator of BeyondBarre, has devised a series of exercises rooted in ballerina training. The BeyondBarre Home Workout requires the use of a ballet barre, a handrail that is used during ballet warm ups. If you do not have access to a ballet barre, a good old fashioned counter top will do just fine.
The barre workout will tighten your core, strengthen arms and legs, and work the glutes. The entire regimen is quick and easy, a perfect workout when you have limited time to squeeze in exercise during the busy summer months.
Summer is not boring – fact. Some of your workouts are getting pretty tired – fact. There’s nothing you can do about it – false.
The summer season officially starts on June 20, also known as the summer equinox. There’s never been a better time than right now to shake up your workout routine. We challenge you to try a new workout every week of summer. By fall, you’ll have found a few new things you really love and those are sure to carry you through the winter workout doldrums. Summer is all about adventure, and your workout routine deserves a little vacation too, don’t you think?
