in Quadriceps Exercise
Main Muscle Worked: Quadriceps
Place a barbell on the rack at a height that’s the same as your shoulders. Load it with weights according to your preference.
Place a platform on the floor just behind you.
Step under the barbell and place the handle across the back of your shoulders.
Hold the barbell with both hands on your sides.
Lift the barbell off the rack by pushing it up with your legs as you straighten your torso.
Step away from the rack and stand up straight with your feet shoulder-width away from each other on top of the platform. Your toes must be pointing out, head up, and back straight. This is your starting position.
Step one foot backwards.
Slowly descend your body by bending your hips and knees at the same time. Continue until your back knee touches the floor. Your front knee must not go beyond your toes.
Pause for a moment then extend your hips and knees to go back to your starting position.
Repeat with your other leg.
