The 20-Minute Pilates-Barre Workout That Sculpts Lean Muscles

What's the secret to a lean, sculpted ballerina physique? If you've ever lusted after that amazing posture and those slender, strong limbs, we're here to share the perfect workout combination with you: barre and Pilates. Pilates moves target deep muscles, enhance your mobility, and correct your spine alignment and posture. Barre workouts follow a basic structure: a mat-based warm-up, followed by a series of arm exercises, then lower-body, and a core-focused closing sequence. Both exercises work well solo, but combined they pack an even bigger punch.

Get the best of both worlds with this week's 20-minute Grokker workout featuring Level 3 Pilates instructor Lottie Murphy. This routine focuses on lengthening and toning through Pilates exercises, as well as barre.
