CHALLENGE TIPTOE SQUATS!

There are a variety of ways to do squats, but one of my favorite versatile versions is the Tiptoe Squat...When you don't have access to weights, but you still want to work your legs, this version of the traditional squat can be pretty challenging.

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.
ON YOUR MARK:
Stand with feet about hip-distance apart and squat down to place hands on a chair, step or a phone book.
GET SET AND GO!
Raise up onto your tiptoes and fingertips while lifting the hips up towards the ceiling and straightening the knees as much as you can. Squat back down and repeat, staying on tiptoes the entire time.

SPECIAL NOTE: The squat will work mainly the front of your thighs and most importantly your butt. One of the biggest mistake people make when doing the squat, is they tend to have their weight forwards on their toes rather than on their heels!
QuickFire Guidelines 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!
