Barre workouts promise you a ballerina figure by working small supportive muscles throughout your body, with a style of exercise called isometrics. These workouts may not seem hard when you watch other people do them, but just wait until you're holding onto the barre, one leg up, trying to move past the burn. If you're ready to try, then here are three ways to work your arms, legs, and butt on the barre!
