Bodyweight Exercise Of The Week – Plie Squat Side Reach

In Training, Uncategorized by Polina

I’ve been working with some people who wanted simple exercises they could do that would stretch and tone simultaneously. This is one of the oldies but goodies from my dancing days, a plie squat with side reach.

It’s great for opening up your hips and stretching your adductor muscles and obliques, all in one.

Do this slowly as a stretch and do this quickly for a quick cardio blast. It is surprisingly tough on the legs as well so expect a bit of calf and quad soreness the next day!
