in Quadriceps Exercise
Main Muscle Worked: Quadriceps
Set a barbell on a rack at a height that’s above your shoulders. Load it with weights according to your preference.
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. Your toes must be pointing out. Keep your head up and back straight.
Lift one foot off the floor and keep it this way all throughout this exercise. This is your starting position.
While keeping your raised leg straight, squat down by bending the hip and knee of your squatting leg. Continue until your thigh is almost parallel to the floor.
Once you’re at the bottom of your movement, hold your position for a moment then get back to your starting position by reversing your movements. Keep your head and chest up and back straight as you do this.
Complete your repetitions in one leg then switch legs and repeat.
