Un­der the mi­cro­scope: Bal­let barre classes for run­ners

Trail Running (UK) - - Warm- Up -

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.

Where? Try Barre Core for this new crosstrain­ing phe­nom­e­non, with classes held across Eng­land www.bar­recore.co.uk
