Lots of second position plie variations, including some fast-paced side to side moves. There is a person doing modifications that does not go down very low in the plies. That modification may help some with tricky knees. After the plies, she moves into crescent pose variations and then planks pulling back into downward dog. Then something similar to a pulsing warrior 2, before repeating crescent pose, planks, and downward dog on the other side. The warm up is fast paced, but I found it very doable.
Sculpted Arms (9:57):
All done standing with dumbbells. She recommends 3 lb weights working up to 5 lbs. I used 5 lbs. I find some upper body barre routines using weights are a bit light but really liked this one. While not as intense as Squeeze Stronger, I felt like I got a nice upper body workout. She does traditional exercises, but adds her own twist to make them interesting.
Booty Barre Workout (32:41): Includes:
o calf raises
o diamond plie variations, including side to side hip movements
o second position plie variations
o lunge, and then moving the back leg forward to kick up into the air (similar to grand battement)
o curtsy squats with kicks
o pulsing arabesque/attitude combo for the glutes
o figure-4 standing stretch
o repeat lunge, curtsy squat, and arabesque/attitude variations, and figure-4 stretch on other side
o second position plie, lifting outside leg up and elbow down to work the obliques
o wide squat pulses kicking leg out to the side
o more standing glute work (just over 2 minutes)
o Repeat second position plie/squat/glute work on other side
o The above takes almost 20 minutes and then she moves into cardio.Read more ›
To do this workout, you'll need a chair and some three- or five-pound hand weights. A yoga mat is also helpful for the core and stretch section at the very end of the workout.
Since another reviewer already gave an excellent breakdown of the workout, I'll just add in that this workout is a great addition to the barre workouts that are already out there. Although the title of her series (Booty Barre) says that the focus is on the rear end, the actual workout title (Total New Body) gives an indication that it's a full-body workout -- and you will definitely feel every muscle group being worked during the sixty-five minutes!
Also, when I read reviews of new workouts, I like to know if they will add something to my fitness library, and this one definitely does. I'm a barre newbie and have only been doing barre workouts for a few months, so my barre library is pretty limited -- I have the two Physique 57 workout series (six DVD's total), Exhale: Core Fusion - Body Sculpt, the three Squeeze workouts by Tracy Effinger, and ROCKIN MODELS Workout DVD with Grace Lazenby, and this one is very different from all of those other workouts.Read more ›
In her introduction, instructor Tracey Mallett explains that she created The Booty Barre workout to combine elements of barre, dance, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing. Tracey instructs the workout live in a bright indoor studio with four background exercisers. The only props required for this workout are a sturdy chair (for the barre work) and a pair of light (3-5 lb.) dumbbells, although I found a mat to be useful.
The Main Menu of the DVD offers options to either Play All or to select each of the four chapters individually. I have described each section of the workout in detail below.
Booty Barre Warm-Up (8.5 minutes)
This is a fast-moving, active warm-up with a bit of a cardio effect. Tracey starts with several variations on pliés, adding in heel lifts and moving from a squat to a standing forward bend. There is also a bit of a dance-like element in swaying the hips from side-to-side. The final sequence includes a flow in and out of a yoga warrior 2 position, from warrior 2 to crescent lunge, and finally from plank to an inverted triangle, or down dog.
Booty Barre Sculpted Arms (10 minutes)
For the first half of this segment, Tracey quickly moves through some more traditional arms exercises, including side delt raise, overhead press, chest press, rear delt lift, and a unique side/rear delt raise which lifts out of a squat position. The second half focuses almost exclusively on triceps work, although it also includes a front delt raise and long biceps curl.
