10 Minute Barre Arms

Hello, hello!

Today I wanted to share a quick at home arm workout! Since I can’t make it to a workout class everyday, I’ve been doing quick routines that can be done in between Charlie’s naps.

You all know how much I love barre workouts so naturally this is a barre inspired routine. It doesn’t take long to get that burn! 🙂

Use 3-5# weights and perform 1-3x through

Below are some detailed exercise explanations.

Side to Side Dips- Perform a regular dip but tap your bottom side to side as you are bending and straightening your arms.

Double Front Raises

Make sure your shoulders are relaxed and your arms are straight. Raise arms up to shoulder height and lower back down to things. Make sure the movement is slow and controlled. *To increase the challenge, add some pulses when your arms are raised at their highest point.

Totally off topic, but who’s watching the Bachelorette and what are your thoughts now that it is nearing the end?! I have been feeling a little blah about this season…and I mean, really the show has been on long enough. Yet I still watch it and my husband complains. I don’t really LOVE any of the guys but Shaun seems like a good guy. We’ll see how it ends.

My all time favorite season was the Jason, Melissa & Molly season….gosh was that 5 years ago or more??  Funny enough, I met Molly at a Pure Barre event in Seattle a few years ago…she was so nice and sweet!! And that my friends is how I tie in the Bachelor and Barre. Boom!

THE BACHELORETTE - ABC's hit romantic reality series, "The Bachelorette," kicks off its 11th season continuing the surprises of this season's "Bachelor" with the biggest one of all: there will be two Bachelorettes. One is Kaitlyn, the gorgeous, fun-loving, warm-hearted, but irreverent firecracker who let down her guard only to have her heart crushed. Who will the men prefer? Eventually, only one woman will be left to hand out the final rose. “The Bachelorette” returns to ABC, premiering MONDAY, MAY 18 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

    I’ve been meaning to try a barre workout. This one looks perfect! Favorite tv shows – well Empire, Scandal, Blacklist are over for the time being which stinks. We have started watching Aquarius which I really enjoy. Can’t ever forget about sports though 🙂

    I have been meaning to try barre workouts as well, there isn’t a gym close by me that offers a class so I need to find resources online, so I’m glad I came across your page. And I feel the same about this bachelorette season. Like every episode there is drama and feel like she can’t even enjoy any of the dates. I am not a fan of Nick, and think Sean is a nice guy, they are making him seem a bit possessive though….. My husband someone gets hooked on all the silly reality TV I watch, Bachelor, housewives, he’ll watch it all with me, lol.

      Hi Patricia!! I just love barre workouts…I know Physique 57 has some online classes, but I think there is a cost. And yes, I can’t stand Nick…seems super creepy! My husband won’t admit it but he totally watches the shows with me as well, ha! Have a great day!
