The barre is used as a prop to balance while doing low-impact exercises that focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. Barre also incorporates light handheld weights to bring the burn to all those reps, as well as mats for targeted core work.
