Bring on the bar

 
This workout will have ya sleek 'n' sculpted in no time! Here, Burr Leonard, founder of the Bar Method, shares her fave get-fit moves. Do 'em three times a week for optimum results.

 

Standing Seat

This all-in-one exercise tones your thighs, works your core and gives your butt a boost, too.

 

Stand comfortably a few inches away from a ballet barre or piece of furniture that is about hip-height.  Hold onto it with both hands while keeping your back straight. Place your feet in a narrow V shape so that your heels are together and your big toes are about three inches apart. Step back with your right foot and rest it on the floor about six inches behind you. With your knees relaxed, raise that foot a few inches off the floor in short pulses, keeping your posture tall and your glute and ab muscles engaged.

Pulse 20 times, then return your foot to the starting position. Switch legs and repeat with the opposite foot.

 

Repeat three times for a total of 60 pulses on each side.

 

 

Kickstand Curl

Bonus! Want fab abs? Look no further than this simple move.
 

Sit on a soft carpeted floor or on an exercise mat with your seat at one end of the mat. Bend your knees, and roll back to your elbows, placing your elbows directly under your shoulders. Turn your palms in, make a fist, and draw your fists diagonally up to your shoulders. Squeeze your glutes and press your lower back down towards the mat. Fold as far forward as you can, so that your ribcage is close to your hipbones, and squeeze your abs. Exhale while curling up slightly, pulling in your abs as you breathe out. Inhale and relax your abs, then quickly and rhythmically complete two sets of 20 curls, bringing elbows down between sets.
