"I mean, my back is not perpendicular to the floor like the back of a chair."
Neither is mine - I feel like I'm at a slant, but I try to look straight ahead. My trainer says I'm doing them correctly. I imagine in time, my back may become straighter, but for now, my knees are behind my toes. Using the chair: Keep the chair behind you and try to keep your weight on your heels. If you feel a need to, briefly set your butt on the chair. Wall: If your're doing these at home and don't have a stability ball, try squatting against a wall,concentrating on keeping your weight on your heels and your toes behind your knees. You won't fall because the wall is there.
Personally, I'm making progress on the squats. It's the lunges causing me trouble now.
