Under the microscope: Ballet barre classes for runners
What? Barre classes strengthen muscles using isometric holds, centred on classic ballet moves like pliés and arabesques. Focusing on correct form and muscle recruitment rather than dancing, they help increase strength in upper legs and glutes.
Why? Strengthening legs and core muscles will help you avoid injury out on the trails.
