How To Do Plie Squats

Plie Squat Exercise

Plié squat is a perfect exercise that’ll help to work the inner and outer thigh to bring balanced strength and tone to the quads.

Do these in conjunction to regular squats in your workout program.

Plie Squat How To

  • Start standing with the feet slightly wider than hip width apart. Turn the feet out as you move into this position.
  • Begin to bend the knees, keeping the upper body straight and back in vertical alignment.
  • Lower down until you’re at 90 degrees or slightly lower and then press back up to move into the standing position once again.
  • Continue until all reps are completed.

Form and Technique

While doing this exercise, watch that your knees are moving directly over your toes to avoid suffering from any knee pain due to misalignment and tracking of this joint.
