What type of barre is required to perform the exercises?
Ideally a fixed barre, screwed into the wall is best. However, free standing, portable barres may also be used. In this instance, there are certain exercises, such as press ups and pull ups, which cannot be performed on a free standing barre.
However, around ninety percent of the barre repertoire may be performed using a free standing barre. Alternatively, many exercises can be done using the back of a chair.
