Want to get in a full-body workout in less than 20 minutes sans equipment? Try this exclusive total-body barre workout from Britany Williams, Sweat app trainer, IBBFA and Barre Variations certified, and creator of the Barre with Britany program.
"The purpose of the workout is to work the muscles to the point of fatigue to strengthen and lengthen the muscle while promoting better mind-body connection," Williams told POPSUGAR. This workout will also help you improve your muscle endurance, strength, and core stability.
This 15-minute workout begins with an abs and arm series, then you'll work your way down to your glutes and thighs for a total-body sweat sesh. We know you're ready to get to work, so grab a mat, some water, and a towel, because it's time to go hard for the next 15 minutes!
Britany Williams's At-Home, Full-Body Barre Workout

Perform all the moves on the right side of your body for rounds one and three, then perform all the moves on the left side of your body for rounds two and four. If needed, take a short rest in between rounds. Once you've finished the workout, cool down and stretch.
