Plie squats are an amazing exercise that defines your inner thighs, as well as glutes (butt), and hamstrings (the back of your legs).
Stand with your feet spaced slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Point your toes very slightly outwards about 45 degrees.
In a plie squat, you're going to sit straight down, making sure that your knees are aligned with your ankles - don't let knees collapse forward. Don't drop down. Use your glutes to pull your down as low as you can (watching knees stay back behind toes).
Then you're just going to stand up, keeping the weight loaded in your heels, glutes squeezed and inner thighs activated.
1. Hold a weight or dumbbell with both hands in front of your hips.
2. Raise hands overhead as you lower (careful not to arch lower back)
3. Add weight to overhead arm lift (as per diagram above).
