GET ALL 4 PRECISION ANGLES WORKOUTS
Welcome to the Precision Angles Series. These 4 workouts are designed to sculpt every angle of your body. You will take it up a notch by adding various equipment. They are full body workouts that target all the problem areas with compound exercises that hit numerous muscle groups all at once. There is a mix of traditional and unique exercises to keep your muscles and mind engaged. You will feel the burn and see the changes!
The 4 Workouts are:
Sculpt (62 mins) you will start with side to side sweeps, raises and reaches. Then a leg raise and sweep series with circles and pulses. Next a angled glute raise to front knee series. Then a weightless arms cardio segment and a light weights arms series. Then keep the weights and do another angled leg raise and knee up series with arm engagement. Next, hit the mat for a side lying series using a long band. Then an abs finisher using a chair and ball. End with a stretch.
Burn (60 mins) you will start with a side circle, raise and extension combination to heat up the lower body. Next you will use the resistance loop around the wrists to warm up the arms and shoulders with larger range of motion exercises. Then move on to light hand weights to sculpt all the major muscle groups as well as smaller supporting muscles. Next move on to lower body using the chair as a prop. You will see a lot of angled variations of leg raises, plies and extensions. Then move to the mat with your loop for a tough laying abs series and an oblique blast finisher. End with a lengthening 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 550 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!
