Lose inches while building lean muscles with movements inspired by ballet, dance, Pilates, and yoga. Ballet BodyT by Leah Sarago integrates traditional body-weight resistance exercises with muscle-elongating techniques to achieve a long and lean physique. Suitable for all fitness levels, these workouts draw on isometrics, the stretch-reflex principle, and muscle-contraction training for optimal results.

The muscle-toning moves lengthen the thighs, lift the backside, and sculpt the backs of the legs for sleek definition and a slim figure. After the workout, relax into a 13-minute yoga- and dance-centered stretch. You'll be shopping for new skinny jeans in no time! Equipment needed: mat and chair

This is a challenging workout and you can be a beginner or a more advanced exerciser and be able to find your place within this workout. Leah obviously has a very strong body, but she works out at the intermediate level on this workout. You are well aware that she can take her plies deeper than she does. She can take the sit backs deeper than she does. I appreciate this level of restraint in teaching - its thoughtful. The intermediate advanced exerciser can see what she is doing and when she recommends that you "could go deeper", but then doesn't herself, allows you to be a better part of the process. Its sorta yoga-esque in that way. (Someone who can easily bend over their legs knows that there is always a deeper stretch to be reached.)
The most noteworthy thing about her lower body workout is the stretch afterwards. I am absolutely positive that at least one of her exercises for thighs or glutes will get your legs shaking. I don't care who you are or how much barre work you have done. These exercises will reach you somewhere - quads, hamstrings,glutes (maximus and minimus),& hip flexors. Yet, even after some pretty hard work, I have found that because of her 10 minutes of stretching - I am not sore the next day. The following morning, my muscles were very tired, but not sore. It seems that a good deal of exercisers do not seem to recognize the difference between muscle exhaustion and muscle strain. I think the point is - is that you want to work to exhaustion, to that tired very heavy feeling, rather than strain - that I cannot make it up or down the stairs without grimacing feeling. This lower body workout, IMHO, successfully, and humbly walks that fine line. It is incredibly thoughtful in that regard. As you conquer that exhausted feeling, you are ready to "go deeper in your plie".
