in Quadriceps Exercise
Main Muscle Worked: Quadriceps
Begin in a power rack with the pins and bar set at the appropriate height. Attach a band on both ends of the barbell. One end of the band should be on the end of the bar and the other anchored on top of the rack or band pegs.
Step under the barbell and place the handle across the back of your shoulders. Squeeze your shoulder blades together and rotate your elbows to your front. Slowly remove the bar from the rack and step back into position. Widen your feet placing more emphasis on your back, glutes, hamstrings and adductors, or closer together to target your quads. Face forward as you do this.
Descend slowly by pushing your knees and butt out. Your shins should be perpendicular to the ground. Continue until the crease of your hip is in line with the top of your knee.
Drive upward as you lead the movement with your head. Continue until you return to your starting position.
Return the barbell to the rack in a slow and controlled manner.
