Ballet Barre Warmup
Warming up for ballet is extremely important, it gets the muscles ready for some hardcore movement.
This is a fairly easy ballet inspired warmup/workout to just get warm whether it be for stretching or more working out!
Doing a proper warm up is essential for every exercise, but is especially crucial for barre workouts. Dancers typically warm up for at least 30 minutes to an hour before launching into their training, and most ballet-inspired barre workouts definitely follow suit.
Flexibility is an essential part of ballet training, as one should strive to strengthen their muscles throughout a full range of motion with each exercise movement. Doing a barre warm up sequence before each ballet workout will help you loosen your muscles and allow you to become more flexible with each exercise.
Here is a barre warm up routine that moves top-down to systematically stretch all of your muscles before your workout.
