Tone it with ballet

This graceful ballet-inspired workout gives you ballerina like feels.

This workout  involves ‘micro movements’. These  graceful bird-like moves, say experts, force you to stay in contraction, making maximum use of muscles which help burn fat. What makes it even more popular is that it can be done at home. So, if you are looking to work that stubborn fat on the lower half of your body, a 30-minute ballet routine is all you need. Here are some popular moves. 

A semi fold

Face a bar. With knees slightly bent, hold the bar and walk back until body is at a 90 degree angle at your waist. Rest your head on the arms. Extend your right leg straight back with your foot flexed. Make circles with the leg. Repeat the same movement with the other leg.

Straight leg

Stand with your right hand forward on the bar, knees slightly bent and heels together. Wrap your left arm around your waist and grab the bar. Extend your left leg diagonally back with your toes pointed. Lift and lower your left leg a couple of times. Make circular movements. Repeat the same pattern with the other leg. 

Seating fit

With one hand on the bar and the other on the hip, turn your toes out slightly and bend your knees. Push hips back, like you are sinking into a seat, till you reach the knee level. Rise on toes, then lower and raise an inch.

Extension parallel

Stand with your back at a fist’s distance away from the bar, feet hip-distance apart, knees slightly bent; reach back with wide arms and grab the bar. Extend your left leg (knee towards ceiling) and flex your foot. Do the moves for 30 seconds each. Now that you know the ropes, try them to remain fit.
