Plie-Squat_ALLMove Targets: Quads, hamstrings and gluteus 


Step 1: Stand with your feet wider than hip-distance apart (about 3-4 feet), turn your toes out 45-degrees and hold your hands clasped in front of your chest.


Step 2: Slowly lower yourself down by bending your knees and hips. Keep your core tight, back straight and do not let your knees move past your toes when lowering. Once your thighs are parallel to the floor, press through your heels and rise back up to standing. That is one rep.  Plie-Squat_RESIZED-2

Modification (advanced): Perform this move on your toes.
