Cardio Barefoot Flow is part of Jessica Smith‘s “live from the living room” workout series. Jessica says this is an endurance cardio workout; you won’t get breathless and it is good for a recovery day. I was impressed with this workout. I really liked it a lot. It wasn’t terribly intense, but it was a solid low impact cardio barre workout–cardio barre without a chair, but with many barre-inspired moves. This was actually the perfect workout for me today. My glutes are still so sore from Jessica’s Leg Day workout so I needed something less intense but that still worked me well. Perfect recovery day workout!
Cardio Barefoot Flow is 37 minutes long; 7:30 minute warm up (I think–its hard to tell when the warm up ends and the workout begins) consisting of plie squats, regular squats, lunges and dynamic stretches. 1:30 minute stretch. Some of the exercises include side to side steps sweeping one leg across in front of the other, flat back forward folds w/ front reaches, wide plies squats w/ front leg sweeps, side to side plie squats, in split stance alternate raising front then back leg, raise leg behind you in “attitude” and pulse, pulsing chair pose, wide stance alternating leg lifts to the back w/ alternating arm sweeps, low impact skaters, side knee raise w/ tap back, side leg raises, squat and straighten legs w/ hands on floor and more.
