Exercise 4: Plié Squats

Strengthen your quads, hamstrings, glutes, and lower back with this challenging squat variation. Your dumbbells will strengthen your arms as you squat.

  • Stand with your legs wide and your toes pointed outward slightly. Hold a pair of dumbbells in your hands with your arms straight and your palms facing down.
  • Bend your knees until they are over your ankles while raising your arms to just below shoulder height. Your arms should be in line with your legs — you should see the weights in your peripheral vision.
  • Straighten your legs and lower your arms simultaneously.
  • Complete as many controlled reps as possible for one minute.
