Long Band | July 2019 | Barre Now by Barre Intensity
Intense Shape. Intense You.

7/2/19: ELYSSA

This class uses the long band looped around the barre the whole way through. You'll see a creative way to teach seated pretzel immediately followed by a side leg lift series. Put these two exercises together and you've got a killer glute focus. We eliminated our more traditional thigh block exercise series for this class but that doesn't mean your thighs won't be working. 

This class is also featured in our long band choreography workshop. 

We used the black TheraBand cut to 7 feet in length. If you have shorter bands those should work as long as they are lighter than black in resistance. As always, try the exercises out with your props first before teaching.
