Being on your toes adds intensity in the calves as well as the quads, so you'll really start to feel it after a few reps. Begin in a wide stance with toes out at a comfortable angle. Your knees will need to stay alined with your toes, so don't go out too far. You can add weights, you can hold dumbbells on the upper thighs, a single dumbbell in front or a barbell on the shoulders or behind the head. Bend the knees and lower down into a squat, keeping knees in line with toes, abs contracted and back straight. Only go down as low as you can without compromising your flexibility or your balance. Push back to start without locking the knees. SPECIAL NOTE: This can be a nice variation to add to your routine if you need a new challenge. Just take care when lowering down and only go as far as your flexibility will allow. Track Under Fitness: Squats Challenge yourself to 50 squats in sets of 8-10 each! Of course, as long as you do them consistently all during your day- You will have accomplished Your Challenge!
