7 Low-Space, No-Equipment Barre Workouts to Ignite That Sweet, Sweet Burn in Every Muscle
It took an injury and a full stop to my normal workout routine to get me on the barre bandwagon, but now that I've completely shifted to at-home fitness, I'm grateful I hopped on when I did. In my apartment, I have almost no workout equipment (RIP to those Amazon dumbbells that never got delivered) and barely enough space for a yoga mat. For barre, that works out perfectly; most online barre workouts require very little space or equipment, and if they do call for weights, they're light enough that I can substitute water bottles or cans of food. The workouts are usually low-impact, so I'm not bothering my downstairs neighbours. And best of all, barre creates that amazing burn in my muscles and gets me sweaty and exhausted, which is the exact distraction I'm craving right now.
Several barre studios are offering free classes and memberships right now, but if you're looking for one or two standalone workouts, keep on reading. We've gathered the seven best YouTube barre workouts we could find to get your muscles aching with a minimum of space, equipment, and time.
