How to Do a Plié Slide

Learn how to do a plié slide from personal trainer Layla Luciano in this Howcast thighs workout video.


So, for your plie slides you can actually do this on a hard surface with bare feet. If you have any kind of paper plates or something, you can use your paper plates to slide. Or, you can just do it with your sneakers on a hard surface. You're going to stand with your feet a little bit wider than shoulder-width apart. Your toes are going to be pointed out 45 degrees, so you're in a plie position. We're going to start off with a plie squat. So, you're going to squat straight down. Now, when you stand up, you're going to drive your foot to your other foot. So, you're going to drag your feet together and almost focus on squeezing your inner thighs together. So, as you stand up, you squeeze that leg in. Drag that foot all the way in and squeeze your inner thighs together. This move is going to focus more on the inner thigh area. It also works, of course, your quads, your hamstrings, your gluts, all of this thigh area here. Again, you're going to squat straight down and you're going to drag that foot, whichever foot you started off with, squeezing your inner thighs together, and bring your feet back together. So, you can do about ten to 12 on either side in your thigh exercise routine. Straight down, and then squeeze together. Really focus on squeezing the inner thighs together as you drag your feet together.
