More ab workouts! You’ve been asking for them, so here’s an effective 10 minute barre core workout you can easily squeeze into your day, or add-on to any workout.

If you’re on my email list you receive my weekly workouts, and last week my main focus was bodyweight core exercises as I’ve been {and still am} recovering from sickness.

These low impact, bodyweight exercises are a great way to strengthen the core muscles {glutes and abs} used for every day activities. Also a great way to recover from and prevent injuries {I’m talking to all you folks with low back pain}. Not to mention benefits like toning your midsection and firming up your glutes.

I mean we are officially at that point in the winter season where 99% of my daydreams involve being on a beach somewhere far away from the snow and subzero temps of the midwest! So naturally, as everyone gears up for winter and spring vacations {I’m going to Arizona in March, wahoo} ab workouts become some of the most popular workouts on my site!

And this 10 minute barre core workout is sure to make several appearances in my own workout routine as I gear up for vacation myself.

Perform 15 repetitions per exercise. Repeat the workout x 4 sets or set a timer for 10 minutes and see how many sets you can get through in 10 minutes.

  1. I only mAde it through 2 times in 10 minutes and that was with no rest too! You must be moving at light speed to get 4 rounds done in 10 minutes! Great moves though, simple and so effective. Thanks ?

    • Thanks for the feedback Kelly; yes you have the option to set a timer for 10 minutes and get through as much as you can or take the time to complete 4 full sets. I’m so glad you liked the moves and found the workout effective! Nice work and thanks for giving the workout a try! Have a great week! -Lindsey

    • Hi Caitlin! Thanks for checking out the workout. Yes, I love bodyweight workouts that can be done anywhere too! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Have a great week xo-Lindsey
