Chair Barre Low Impact Total Body Workout (BEGINNER-FRIENDLY BALLET INSPIRED!)

Chair Barre

My low impact Chair Barre Workout is fun, fast-paced and efficient. Its a beginner friendly dance inspired routine that you can do at home. You’ll sculpt long, lean muscles while protecting your joints and improving your coordination. All you need is a chair and your favorite playlist!

One benefit of my Chair barre-style workout is its focus on strengthening and stabilizing the oft-neglected smaller muscle groups, especially those in the lower body. The majority of the movements and exercises that we do throughout the day rely on the big muscles that we all know and love – glutes, hamstrings, quads, etc. While important, our large muscles can only function properly when supported by the little guys, so it’s crucial that we also show some TLC to the supporting muscles.

The supporting muscles that you will train in this workout include:

  • Abductors and adductors (inner and outer thighs)
  • Gluteus medius and minimus (side of the hips)
  • Erector spinae (muscles that straighten and rotate the back)
  • Psoas (hip flexors)

The back of a chair serves as the barre in this workout, which helps balance your body as you find correct alignment. That said, the chair is there as a light support only; your goal in this workout is to use your core strength to maintain balance and control, with as little assistance from the chair as possible.

Now, let’s get you moving! You’ll need a stable chair to use as the barre, and either a yoga mat or grip socks to keep you stable. Start slowly during each interval and once your form starts to improve, work your way towards more repetitions. You can repeat this workout three times per week.
