Move Targets: Calves, Core and Shoulders


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Set your feet wide and turn the toes out about 45 degrees. Drop into your plié, then raise up to the balls of your feet. At the same time, you're holding a single dumbbell at the top of the chest, elbows out.weighted-point-plie

Step 2: Without shifting your feet or hips, tip the torso over to one side, aiming the elbow to that thigh. Control the tip with your obliques, working the core.
