GET ALL 4 QUIET QUARANTINE WORKOUTS
Welcome to the Quiet Quarantine series. These workouts are designed to give you a low impact total body burn that won't wake up the neighbours. Perfect if you live in an apartment, but obviously still effective even if you don't! Work off some of that lock down frustration and get in shape for the big reveal on the other side.
THE 4 WORKOUTS ARE:
Barre (46 mins): you will start with some releve combinations to warm up through your feet and ankles. Next move into an outer thigh and oblique series with a wide plie to knee pull with extension, then just the extensions, then a long lever leg and arm crunch. Then an all fours series with a balance hold and triceps extensions then staggered triceps push ups to change sides. Next a wide plie, Pilates ring upper body segment with pulses and squeezes, one side releve with pulse and oblique bend, then a figure eight move and a steering wheel twist to finish. Next standing leg raises and extensions. Then move to the floor for some tough abs work. Finish with c-curve tucks and squeezes and twisting oblique crunches.
Burn (48 mins): you will start with knees and kicks in various directions to heat up the entire body. Then high energy knee pulls before moving to the mat for a plank with knee hover series. Next 3 glute kicks with one elbow down into a mini handstand. Then side lying leg scissors into a down dog glute raise. Then a crouching step series to burn out the quads, an up up stretch to down down knee hover. Then an Asian squat series and a knee tap tuck exercise. Next the heavier weights with a lunge and squat combination and biceps curls. Then a side lying outer thigh series with the weight for added intensity. A large range of motion side to side sit out, then side plank series. Finally a seated abs series with arm engagement.

Next sit on the ball to do bounces with arm reaches in various directions, then side to side lunges and arm circles. Then in a kneeling position use the ball for waist twists and side bends. Next, abs on the ball with knee pushes and lower ab raises, then upper ab crunches. Next a light weights arm series with inner thigh ball engagement.

About The Instructor: Hi, I'm Linda - creator of Barlates Body Blitz. I have worked in the diet and fitness industry for most of my career and have created close to 800 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, lets go workout 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!
