Barre Workout for Seniors
Unless you’ve been living alone isolated in the woods these past couple of years, you’ve no doubt heard of barre exercises or barre classes. Barre exercises typically combine techniques that are used in yoga, ballet, and Pilates, to develop strength and flexibility in various muscle groups throughout the body. These exercises are often broken out into working different sections of muscle while focusing on small, pulsing movements with emphasis on form, alignment and core engagement.
Improve Strength and Flexibility
In addition to being a fun workout, barre exercises offer many benefits. With a proper barre workout, you’ll be able to increase muscle strength, improve flexibility, build endurance, and even improve your posture. And the good news for seniors is that these workouts are generally gentle on the joints. If you’re looking for a great all around strength and flexibility exercise, give barre a try!
