Want a poppin’ booty before summer gets here? Try this barre workout from Renee Scott, founder of Barre Attack, and you’ve got yourself a deal.

Complete as many reps of each move as you can in one minute. Repeat for three rounds.

Parallel plié with inner thigh squeeze

  • Bend your knees and keep them over the toes like you are sitting back in a chair.
  • Lengthen the torso and scoop up through the lower stomach.

Hover to Pyramid

  • Hold the knees just off the floor keeping the length through the spine
  • Scoop up through the tummy to press into pyramid. Keep your core engaged the whole time.
  • Add a rotation on the hover to advance the move.

Frogs into Reach

  • Make sure your feet and toes are turned out wide apart.
  • Look out in front as you reach down to the floor to keep the movement in the legs rather than flexing the lower back.
  • Add a jump at the top to advance the move and lift the heart rate.

Butt lift and hamstring curl

  • Stand on one leg and pop the ball behind one thigh.
  • Prep by squeezing the knees together and keep the supporting leg bent.
  • Pull the weight back into the heel as the thigh lengthens behind the body.
  • Bring the knees  back together and keep your pelvis  stable throughout the whole movement.

Plié on first on a rise

  • Keep the knees over your toes and only bend as far as you can keep the crotch line over the ball. (There shouldn’t be any pain through the knees.)
  • Squeeze the heels to squash the ball so your inner thighs, glutes and hamstrings stay active the whole time.
  • Zip up through the waist to keep core engaged and torso lengthened.

Port de bras to the side

  • Reach the arm up and over to lengthen the torso
  • Using your obliques and core, return to an upright position.
