You know that shaky leg feeling you get from taking a cardio barre class? Get that same barre burn at home with this guided, 45-Minute Workout: Cardio Barre Class At Home! This intense barre workout targets the legs, arms and abs, using optional light weights and a resistance band or no equipment!
You’ve been asking for longer, 45-minute workout videos. So I’ve decided to give this Instagram live, cardio barre workout a permanent home on the blog!
I shot this Instagram live workout on whim and now it’s one of my FAVORITE barre cardio workouts.
It’s quickly gained popularity on YouTube as one of the most ‘intense’ barre classes online. With comments like:
“Holy smokes! I have to admit I’m a strength training kind of gal so I haven’t done many barre workouts, I assumed they’d be too easy. Wow was I wrong. This was killer, in a good way! Thanks for the awesome workout!”
An upbeat, high energy barre class that combines traditional, lightweight barre exercises with non-stop, fat burning, metabolic movements.
Think tiny, pulsing lunges to tone and strengthen the muscles in the legs, thighs and glutes.
Paired with larger, multi-muscle, resistance exercises like reverse lunges with a front shoulder raise (pictured above) or lunge jumps. This lengthens the muscles in the legs and arms while also raising your heart rate to burn calories.
Note, the follow along workout video above provides high impact and low impact options to best suit your fitness level.
The calories burned in this 45-minute online barre class will vary from person to person.
That said, cardio barre is a highly effective workout and you can expect to burn between 300-500 calories in this 45-minute workout.
Barre Fitness Instructor Lindsey, will guide you through this full body barre workout you can do at home.
Modifications are offered for all fitness levels. Make this barre workout more joint, knee and hip friendly with the low impact exercises offered.
This is one of my signature barre formats. So you can expect a high energy, athletic barre workout rather than a traditional ballet barre workout.
I’m using 3 and 5 lb dumbbells in this workout but you can sub soup cans or filled water bottles as dumbbells. Or complete this barre workout with your bodyweight.
Find more DIY home substitutions for exercise equipment in this post, like using a rolled up sports bra as a mini loop resistance band.
Guided Warm Up
NOTE: I filmed this workout live and the last few minutes of the workout got cut off. You can find the barre abs and core series I did here here: 10-Minute Barre Core Workout.
The cool down and stretching was also cut off so you can reference this Mobility Stretching Routine.
