One of the most important and functional muscle groups are the Quadriceps, aka the Quads. The Quads are the front of the thighs and are strong and important in many of our sports and everyday functions. Here are some of my favorite quad exercises.

Bulgarian lunge

Cable lunge

Cable squat

Forward lunge

Hack squat

Leg extension

Leg press


Step up

Traveling lunge

NOTE: Perform with fullest range of motion available. Avoid hyperextending or flexing lumbars.
