in Quadriceps Exercise
Main Muscle Worked: Quadriceps
Set a barbell on a rack at a height that’s slightly lower than your shoulders. Load it with weights according to your preference.
Place a weight plate on the floor a couple of feet away from the rack.
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 and the plate beside you. Your toes must be pointing out, head up, and back straight. This is your starting position.
Slowly lower the barbell by bending your hips and knees at the same time. Continue to descend until your knees are bent at slightly less than 90 degrees.
After that, raise the barbell by extending your hips and knees at the same time. Continue until your legs are fully extended.
Next, step sideways to move your feet to the opposite side of the plate.
Push the weight plate away to the other side using your inside foot.
