Barre Workout: Embrace the Shake
13 March 2023
“Shake, rattle, and roll”….so goes a famous rock tune. But you can shake, rattle, and roll to new levels of physical fitness via the Barre Workout!
This popular and fun fitness program greatly helps improve your muscular tone and endurance. You know that rewarding feeling following a truly great workout. A bit of a “runner’s high”, a bit of that muscular feeling that you’ve just accomplished something meaningful. Well, you get both of that in Barre and you simply need to experience it for yourself.
Shaking is common in barre. In fact, vibration is a common therapy technique because of the positive effect that it has on muscles, however, that is a different topic for a different day. When your muscles shake during Barre, they are challenged and they start contracting and releasing at an intensified pace. In a barre class, you will experience a completely different feeling than you will, with your usual training style. Your muscles work in a new way and they react in a new way. This is normal and it is not a problem if you are not pushing too far past that point. Many people find that as they continue doing barre workouts, they shake less because the muscles get conditioned to this response. Actually, they want to build muscle but are afraid of reaching that ‘shake’ point. While other people shake no matter what and no matter how long they do barre. Though shaking during barre is not an indicator of your fitness level.
As you are being motivated during the class, it will help push through the burn while honoring where your body is right now. Realities, barre workouts are hard. The challenge depends largely on the target muscles that are not necessarily used in your everyday movement. Generally shaky muscles during a workout are typically thought of as a badge of honor for a workout well done or as a sign of building strength.
