🚀 5 Best Quad Exercises for Building Bigger Stronger Legs 👇

✅ Bulgarian Split Squat – you’ll want one foot back behind you, elevated on a bench with the other right in front of you. Grab weights if you want to make the exercises more difficult, but bodyweight is a good place to start if you’ve never done this movement before. When doing this movement, make sure your knee is NOT caving inward as this will cause unnecessary knee pain. Instead, focus on driving the knee outward.

✅ Barbell Front Squat – similar to the back squat, but instead you’ll have the bar in front of your body. This variation will place more weight on the front of your body which will be working your quads more. Things to focus on here is to drive your knees outward, keeping your back straight up and down, chest out and squeezing out the glutes at the top.

✅ Goblet Squats – you’ll want a kettlebell or a dumbbell for this movement. Grab your desired equipment, and hold the weight in front of your body at your chest and squat down with the weight in front of your body. This will emphasize your quads since the weight is in the front. Key takeaways here are to drive your knees outward, keep your back straight up and down, chest out and squeezing out the glutes at the top just like the front squat.

✅ Reverse Lunges – for this movement you can do bodyweight if you’re a beginner or add some weights if you are more advanced. For this example, I’ll be using dumbbells. Rather than stepping forward and doing a lunge – you’ll be stepping backwards and doing the lunge. Keep your knees driving outward, hip hinge like the Bulgarian split squat, back straight up and down, chest out for the whole movement.

✅ Close Stance Leg Press – for this variation you’ll want your feet closer together than a normal leg press. Toes should be slightly more vertical, and you should focus on squeezing with your quads. Instead of coming all the way down like a normal leg press, stop at about 90 degrees. Be sure to really focus on squeezing through your quads for this variation.
