Get ready to sculpt your lower body with a muscle-toning barre workout from 21 Day Fix-creator Autumn Calabrese! Today, she’s taking over Beachbody HQ to show you how to tone your quads, hamstrings, calves, and booty. All you need to follow along is 5 minutes and a sturdy railing or a bar.
Autumn didn’t just pull these moves out of thin air—she was a dancer before she took the fitness world by storm with 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, The Master’s Hammer and Chisel, and Country Heat, her new country danced-inspired workout program. But for today’s Lower Body Barre Workout, it’s all about small, precise movements that will help you sculpt sleek, sexy legs.
The first move is the tippy toe squat chair, which will make your calves, quads, and booty burn right off the bat. Next, you’ll focus on your inner thighs with a few reps of water skiers. After that, you’ll go into full ballet-mode with arabesque lifts, raising your leg behind you. They might look pretty, but they’ll kick your you-know-where if you’ve never then them before. Flip around for front leg lifts, raising your leg as high as you can in front of you. The releve pile will take you back to ballet-basics, challenging you to stay as low as you can. Finally, show some spunk with the back attitude lifts. This move is similar to the arabesque lifts, but it works the booty in a slightly different way because of the bent leg.
Once you’ve completed all six quick moves, you’re done! But don’t forget to take some time to stretch your legs at the end—you’ll need it, and they’ll thank you. The more you do this barre workout, the easier it will become. As it get’s easier, increase the number of reps you perform for each move so you can continue to challenge your muscles and sculpt a leaner, stronger, sexier lower half.
