Targets: Butt, inner thighs, and calves
- Stand with feet wider than shoulder-width apart, toes turned out 45 degrees, holding a single dumbbell with both hands in front of hips (or fold arms in front of chest without dumbbell). Make it harder: Use a 10- to 15-pound dumbbell.
- Lower into plié squat until knees are bent as far as 90 degrees, knees behind toes.
- Hold plié squat and lift heels as high as you can off ground for one count. Make it easier: Lift one heel at a time.
- Lower heels and rise halfway to standing, then lower.
- Do 8 to 10 reps.
