TIPS: Barre workouts, Pilates, other fitness tips


The Plank!  Found a great link to a Plank challenge.  Plank challenge from purelytwins.

Triceps:  Working on the LUNCH lady arms


In some Barre classes they call this the "reverse pushup", some know this as a tricep dip.  Sitting on the floor, feet flat, hands behind your back-side.  Finger tips can face towards your seat or out to the side. It is recommended not to point fingers away (directly behind), can cause extra tension on your shoulders.

Now lift your seat off the floor, extending your elbows, but not locking them.  Start bending at the elbows an inch, lift back up. (small movements) Do this for 10-20 reps, rest your seat back on the mat.  For an extra challenge, lift one leg up (as shown above) or cross ankle over opposite knee. Feel the burn in your tri's.
