Top 5 - Quad Exercises


For the next month, I will be putting out some information on my top 5's across the fitness world. Each week will be based on a different aspect to fitness, they are the following:


Week 1 - Top 5 exercises

Week 2 - Top 5 stretches

Week 3 - Top 5 foods

Week 4 - Top 5 home/bodyweight exercises


In week 1, I will be covering:


Monday - Quadricep exercises

Tuesday - Hamstring exercises

Wednesday - Chest exercises

Thursday - Back exercises

Friday - Shoulder exercises

Saturday - Arm exercises

Sunday - Full body exercises


It is worth noting that throughout the next 4 weeks, these are my preferences - not necessarily the generic fitness preferences.


Quadriceps:


#1 - Squat


Best compound exercise out there for the quads, there are many different forms so plenty to choose from.


#2 - Lunge


Another good compound exercise, great alternative to the squat.


#3 - Step Up


Great for knee health - be careful to keep knee roughly same height as hip to prevent injury.


#4 - Split Squat


Another alternative to the squat, can be added as a bodyweight exercise to leg days.


#5 - Leg Extension


Not necessarily my favorite isolation exercise for the quads but the most common machine you will see for quad isolation.



Be your best!
