  • Quad exercise ideas

    What are some exercises that really target the quads? I do extensions and front squats but I need some others. I don't want to involve the hams and glutes much, if at all possible. Thanks!!

          That is not a very compound leg exercise and it is not recommended for this program.

            its an isolation exercise thats hard on your knees and not terribly effective

            i can see not wanting to have your glutes to come into play too much but why not your hams? have you ever actually seen someone with disproportionately large hamstrings?
            It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

              I agree with nemo-- I believe that the quad to ham strength ratio is 4 to 1. If you have a greater ratio than that (usually higher quad) will leave you a higher possibility for hamstring pulls.

              Anyhow in a study by Rosene in the journal of athletic training--> who researched the Quadriceps Ratios in Intercollegiate Athletes- found that the strength of hams are proportionally linear to the strength of quads. basically said weak hams equals weak quads.

                  Richard, you can do:

                  SLDL,
                  standing leg curls,
                  lying leg curls and
                  the one on the leg press
                  (kinda hard to explain but its in CFP I believe)
                  Blade

                  "Keep your purpose in mind, simply go to the gym and do your workout, do it well and don't worry
                  what other people are doing. Confidence will grow as you achieve."

                  "If you believe in yourself, have dedication and pride and never quit, you'll be a winner. The price of
                  victory is high, but so are the rewards"

                              Since starting DC training consistently I have gained a lot of size to my legs. I am doing the hack squats...4-8 heavy set, then the brutal 20 repper. If that doesn't effectively torcher your quads nothing will. When I am done w/ a DC leg day I walk/hobble out of the gym like a damn cowboy!
