Athletic Barre

Hello, I am interested in a more athletic and cardio barre type workout. I have been eying {Turbo Barre}6074^, {Cardio Barre}5759^ and {Booty Barre}5959^. I am a little concerned with jerky quick movements that compromise technique but I want to really to add a few to my rotation. I have Physique 57 Volume 1 and 2 and I love them.  So I'm no stranger to a more cardio barre workout. Any opinions and differences between them would be certainly appreciated!

    {Ultimate Advanced Cardio Barre}5759^ is very fast paced so definitely higher cardio effect than most barre workouts.  If you like P57 I think you'd like {Booty Barre}5959^.  And {turbo barre}6074^ is just something completely different so worth having too!  Cathe uses weights and offers lots of variety so get your $'s worth there.  In terms of which is most 'different' to P57, I would say cardio barre; however personally it's my least favourite of these ...

    {Cardio Barre]5759^ is definitely a cardio workout but if you're worried about quick movements that might compromise proper form and technique, I would scratch this one off the list.  Personally, I really like it but if you're not really good with your form, it could be a problem.

    I don't have {Turbo Barre}7074^ so can't comment on that.  I would recommend {Booty Barre}5959^.  I have both the original and Booty Barre {Plus Arms & Abs}6005^ and I love them both.  They also definitely have that cardio effect.  I burn over 400 calories with them.  Tracey comes from a dance background so it's got more ballet movements in it than probably Turbo Barre since Cathe is more athletic.

    Thank you! I really like more arm work in my barre too. Everyone seems to like {Booty Barre}5959^. I have both her Fuse Dance and love them!

    Mj476, Does the original Booty Barre have just as much arm work than the {Plus}6005^? If you had to pick just one, which would you go with?

    Bumble, {Turbo Barre}6074^ looks really different. Does it have more arm work than most barres?

    Booty Barre {Plus Arms & Abs}6005^ does have more arm work.  The arm work in the original is good but I think she does more sets and different exercises in Arms & Abs.

    Thank you Marcy. I might just go with the plus one. I noticed some say that both are hard on the knees. From the clips it seems she does a lot of ankle work too. Which I need! But I'm still debating. I went ahead and bought {Turbo Barre}6074^ and {Ultimate Advanced Cardio Barre}5769^. I look forward to them!

    ... only about 10 minutes of the workout seems to be for arms/upper body ... I think you will be pleased with your choices ;)

    Hope you're happy with your purchases.  {Cardio Barre Ultimate Advanced}5769^ definitely gives your triceps a workout.  The bonus portions are great.
