So. In Hello October’s recent post, she mentioned a ballet workout she’s been trying. I was intrigued so i had a little gander on Youtube and devoted some of my Saturday night in (yes, that’s right – a Saturday night!) to trying this workout. Besides, afterwards my plan was to relax in the bath with Cosmo magazine so y’know, win win.

Ballet Beautiful workout was created by Mary Helen Bowers and it’s a workout that is designed to activate the core, burn fat, and tighten the inner and outer thighs, legs, hips, calves, abs, and butt through a unique series of target-toning bridge exercises that can be done anywhere. Perfect for those without time to go to the gym or those who just want to do it in the comfort of their own home. Plus you can stop and have a break this way.
I tried this for the first time (i haven’t been to the gym in a while – bad bev) and it killed me. I used muscles i didn’t even know i had!
The workout is on Youtube here and is broken down into the different workouts i.e outer legs you work on for around 11 minutes, then theres an abs section. You get the drift. This means you can switch and choose what part you want to work on or you can work through them all in different orders each time you do it.
Although while doing the workout it felt like hell and i convinced myself i would not be able to walk the next day, when i got moving the next day, it ached a little bit but not as much as going to the actual gym.
I think this will be my new favourite workout as it tones your muscles and it really simple to do.
Are there any workouts you’re doing at the moment? Have you tried this one?
