Increases bone health
- As your muscles’ strength improve, so does your bones. This is helpful especially when you’re fighting off osteoporosis or arthritis, which get worse as you age.
- Increase your endurance with high-repetition exercises or by holding your body in challenging poses. Barre works the muscles in a small range at a fast pace and the constant strength training improves both your heart rate and endurance.
- Barre workouts use weights, resistance bands, exercise balls, barre, and your body weight to strengthen and tone your body. It is a full-body workout targeting both upper and lower body, and your core.
- Barre moves increase your heart rate and lunge use.Note that Barre workouts are not fast enough to get your heart rate going for extended periods of time as a full aerobic workout.
- Functional strength involves exercises that help you build strength for your day-to-day activities such as walking, climbing, and lifting objects. Compound movements create Functional Strength because they involve maximum muscle fibers. What’s more, the more muscle you have, the more your heart rate goes up!
