GET ALL OVERLOAD TRAINING SERIES WORKOUTS
Welcome to the Overload Training Series, a series of 4 workouts that are designed to strengthen and define your entire body. These workouts are a fusion of Pilates and Ballet Barre as well as some traditional bodyweight toning exercises. You will work one muscle group to full fatigue before moving on to the next. Itís this overload technique which will give you results fast!
THE WORKOUTS ARE:
Chisel (54 mins): start with squats, lunges and side leg raises, move to a back and diagonal lunge set with knee pulls. Move to the mat for a plank, then a tough triceps dip series. Use your resistance loop and light weights to work your whilst engaging your lower. Next a tough barre set for front of thighs, followed by thigh dancing. Then move to seat work with side leg raises and tucks, followed by a pretzel set. You will finish on the mat with a tough abs segment and a final stretch.
Define (54 mins): starts with squat variations using a resistance loop to engage the arms then moves to a tough plank series with the loop around the ankles, a 3 part triceps segment using the chair to elevate, then a barre arms section with lower body engagement, a front of thigh series with standing barre exercises and a seated leg raise series, then a challenging glute and hamstring fold over set followed directly by a lying segment for the same muscle groups. Finish with an intense abs series and stretch.
Sculpt (54 mins): starts with flowing dance fusion movements to heat up the body, then a push up and triceps dip series, a wide plie segment using the figure 8 loop, a barre arms segment with lower body engagement, then move to a glute and hamstring standing barre set followed directly by an all 4s set using the same muscle groups, finally a long arms and abs segment and a lengthening stretch.
Tone (53 mins): start with knee and straight leg raises to warm up, then a tough plank series, a standing barre inner thigh set with the ball, followed by glute bridge for the same muscle groups, a push up series and kneeling barre arms segment, then a standing and kneeling outer thigh and glute segment, a short parallel thigh series and abs on the mat to finish, plus a stretch.
About the instructor: Hi, I'm Linda - creator of Barlates Body Blitz. I have worked in the diet and fitness industry as an instructor and personal trainer for most of my career and have created close to 650 workout videos to bring my passion for exercise to you! My desire is to help you sculpt a strong, healthy body with a fusion of barre, Pilates, yoga as well as more traditional cardio + toning exercises. So what are you waiting for? Let's go work out together!
What is Barlates Body Blitz: Barlates is a fusion style workout that borrows from pilates, barre, ballet, yoga and more traditional cardio and toning. The idea was to create a workout, which flows seamlessly from one move into the next using the principles of isotension and high repetitions to build long, lean muscles. By using a lighter weight with high repetitions the exercises are designed to target all of those underused smaller muscle groups resulting in a defined, lengthened dancer's physique. This is a real girls workout in the sense that it is fun and feminine, but don't get me wrong it is still super intense with a big burn factor! The workouts are designed to be mixed and matched with an array of 20-30 minute upper body, lower body, abdominal and total body workouts that can be strung together for a longer session or done individually if you are short on time. These workouts will hit all those trouble spots and best of all you don't even need to wear shoes to do them! Get ready to sweat, puff and burn - hopefully you'll love every minute of it!
