The Bar Method

Apparently Kelly Osbourne owes her figure to the Bar Method. Never heard of it? Let us explain how you can get a dancer’s body too.

What is the Bar Method?

The Bar Method is a combination of ballet barre work and interval training that burns fat fast. Kelly Osbourne is a huge fan and claims it’s how she shed 3 stone and kept it off!

If you want a dancer’s body this is the perfect workout for you. Kelly says: ‘It’s incredible to get muscles in places, I never knew I could.’

How does it work?

If you’re already into yoga and pilates then the Bar Method could help you further define your muscles. Poses are held for longer than in pilates and aim to provide better muscle definition. The workout is adapted according to your weight.

How will it change my shape?

Some women are worried about building muscles, but doing the ballet workout will result in perfect posture, lean limbs and a flat belly. Think Natalie Portman in Black Swan!

How can I do this at home?

Let’s face it, not many of us have a ballet barre in our homes but that doesn’t mean you can’t still get results from the Bar Method. All you need is Xtend Barre Ballet Workout DVD (£15.99, and the back of a chair will work just as well as your workout barre.
