Plie Squat With Calf Raise

The plie squat is great for toning the inner thighs. This exercise also works your core, glutes, thighs, ankles and calves.

Start by standing with feet wider than hip-width apart with your feet pointed outwards. Holding a dumbell or a kettle bell with both hands slowly lower yourself down into a plie squat. Keep your abs held in tight to support your lower back. Chest lifted, back straight. Do not lean forward. Lower your glutes towards the floor. Go as low as you can.  Extend your legs to stand and press up onto the balls of your feet. Return to start position and repeat. Do 3-4 sets of 12-20 reps.
