Most of us are used to this calf-burning position from wearing our favorite heels, but this squat will tone your butt, quads, and calves—no Jimmy Choos required!
How to do it: With feet hip-width apart, squat down as if you are sitting in a chair. Lift your heels as high as you can and hold for 10 seconds. Release heels and then stand. That's one squat. Form check: Stick your booty back farther than you think you should—most women tend to curl their hips under in a squat, which can lead to lower-back and knee injuries. Your bum should not be over your heels.
