If you are on vacation and don’t have access to the gym, try these barre moves with just a chair as a prop. You can strengthen the entire lower body with these low-intensity exercises, and you’re using your body weight as resistance. It shouldn’t take you longer than 15 minutes if you do three sets of each exercise, and you’ll really feel it working.

Pulsing Wide Plié

Place one hand on a chair and the other is straight out in line with your shoulder. Step your feet out to point to the corners of the room, with the legs externally rotated and turned out. Lower the hips in between the legs into a plié. The weight is centered between both legs, the torso is vertical, and the shoulders are relaxed. Bend both knees and lower the hips towards the floor start pulsing up and down for 20-30 seconds.

Barre Lunges

Place both hands on the back of a chair for balance, feet together. Step one leg back and then bend both knees lowering to just above the floor into a lunge, keeping the heel of the back heel up. Bring the leg to start position and alternate. Do 10 on each side.

Curtsey Lunge into Side Leg Lift

Stand on the right side holding the chair with the right hand, with your feet together in a small V. Bring the left leg behind the right leg, as close to the chair as you can, and bend both knees into a lunge towards the ground. Come back up and kick the left leg out straight to the side. Do 12 on each side.

Single Leg Dead Lift

Stand with the feet together and knees very slightly bent. Start to lift the left leg straight back, bringing your torso forward parallel to the ground, bending the right knee as you go down. Come back up to the start position and do 10 reps on each side.
