Ever wonder why ballet dancers have such great backsides? Try this ballet-inspired plie squat to find out!
How to do it: Start standing and hold one dumbbell at either end with both hands, with your feet slightly wider than hip width apart, and your toes turned out about 45 degrees. Lift your heels off the floor, balancing on the balls of your feet, bend your knees, and lower your body straight down, keeping your hips under your shoulders and your back straight. Make sure your knees open over, but not past, your toes as they bend. Slowly straighten back up and then lower your heels.
Form tip: Be sure to keep your abs drawn in tight to help with your balance during this move.
