We use our legs for everything—from getting out of bed in the morning to an after-work run with a friend—so sometimes it’s easy to overlook workouts that focus on the lower body. But this quick, cardio barre sequence is a must-try.
In less than 10 minutes, you’ll plié and pulse your way to stronger legs with a few fast-paced, ballet-inspired moves. Just because it’s short doesn’t mean you won’t break a sweat and get your heart rate up. The best part: You can literally roll out of bed to do this. It requires nothing but your own body weight (an exercise mat is optional), so it’s perfect for those hectic mornings when you want to fit in a workout but don’t have a ton of time.
