Super Sculpting I:
Burr Leonard has packaged together the Bar Method’s most fast-acting body-reshaping moves into one super-targeted 59-minute workout. The exercises include four sets of thigh-work and the Bar Method’s famous “pretzel with the ball" exercise. You’ll also use the ball to zero in on problem areas in your inner thighs and seat. Burr’s fellow performers are Chelsea Glavinovich, co-owner of the Walnut Creek and San Ramon Bar Method studios in San Francisco’s East Bay. Keryun Dukellis and Mike Najjar are both teachers at the San Francisco’s flagship Marina studio, and Tera Roth is a teacher at the Downtown San Francisco studio. If you want the quickest results possible, this is the workout for you.
Super Sculpting II:
Tighten your seat-belts! Bar Method founder Burr Leonard puts the pedal to the metal in this 58-minute workout by combining her most aerobic variations, many of them never seen except in studios, with a fast-tracked pace. You’ll do five sets of thigh-work, one of them performed with the ball between your legs and two sets of seat exercises that simultaneously challenge both legs. During the abdominal section you’ll perform safe, beautiful-looking sequences that will set your abs on fire. Presenting the workout with Burr are Sharon Demko and Kiesha Ramey-Presner, both teachers at the Bar Method’s flagship studio in the San Francisco Marina, and Juan Barba, a teacher at the Bar Method studio in Burbank, California. In Kiesha’s words, Super Sculpting II is “intense but within reach for someone to work up to. The choreography is really fun, and Burr inspires you to do it.”
