How to Train Your Quadriceps
By Shane Piccolo, Trainer at Lakeview Health Wellness Center
On the front of your upper thigh is the feature of Muscle Mondays this week. The Quadriceps are four muscles that work together to flex the hip and extend the knee. The Rectus Femoris originates on the iliac spine of the pelvis and inserts on the tibial tuberosity via the patellar tendon. The Vastus Lateralis, Vastus Intermedius, and Vastus Medialis start on the upper portions of the femur and have the same end point on the Tibia. Proper training of your quads will add speed, power, explosiveness and strength to any person. Not to mention a defined set of quads is impressive to look at. Follow up with the video below for demonstrations and explanations for training these muscles.
