The Plie Squat can be a good change up exercise for you to tone your butt, hips and thighs. You can include the plie squat as part of a good leg circuit to shape and tone your rear and side view.
Because of the placement of your feet, the plie squat will work your inner thighs more that the regular squat. The plie squat will also work your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes and core. You will lower your squat as far as your flexibility will permit. You will be able to touch the dumbbell to the ground if your flexibility permits. As you lower into the squat, don’t let your knees collapse and keep them in line with your feet.
Keep your back straight during the squat (don’t round the back or hunch over).
1. Your beginning stance should be a wide and comfortable angle. Let the dumbbell hang in front of your body.
2. Descend into a squat. Keep your knees in line with your toes, your back straight and abs braced (as if taking a punch to the gut). Go down as far as your flexibility permits.
3. Rise back up to the starting position. Don’t lock your knees.
