Today is our second day of Barre and we’re focusing on the arms.
You can do the whole class with or without hand weights.
I’m using 2 pounds (1/2 kilo) weights the video.
Don’t worry if you don’t have hand weights, you can use soup/baked bean cans, small bottles filled with water. Or if you don’t have any of those, try a couple of books, or heavy shoes will do!
The most important thing is not to feel tension in the neck and shoulders.
For most of us the upper trap muscles (around the neck and shoulder area) are often tight from over use and using our devices.
Keep relaxing your shoulders down your back to prevent more tension building.
Be sure to also take a break anytime you need, or do away with the weights at any point.
You will probably find you don’t even need extra weight, just holding the arms up is enough.
As always listen to your body.
Let me know if you have any questions at all.
I’m doing my best to respond to everyones messages.
However if I still have not responded to your comment or questions, either on Facebook, Insta or in the comments on the website, please give me a day or so. Then if I still haven’t responded, please follow me by email.
Lots of love
