Plie Slides

Plie slides improve leg strength with a slight emphasis on the inner thigh muscles. The movement also improves flexibility and mobility of the hips.

    Begin by standing tall with your heels pressed together, turning your toes out to 45-degrees. Keep your hands on your hips for support.
  2. Plie Slides
    Slide one foot out beyond hip-width, keeping your other in the same position, and descend into a squat position. Return back to starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Do not let your knees cave inward as you squat.
  • Do not let your heels lose contact with the floor during the squat.
  • Don't bend your knees to start the squat. Instead, push your hips back to initiate the movement.
