Unlike most workouts, the Pure Barre technique is about small, controlled movements rather than huge ranges of motion. When your teacher says, "Down an inch, up an inch," she literally means 1 inch - think: the size of a paper clip. These tiny, precise, sharp movements keep you in your working zone. This sweet spot is where your muscles fatigue and the change happens. So, keep your range of motion small, and remember, the smaller the movement the bigger the change!
