Quads Week 1

We’re going to start this video series with leg extensions to isolate your quads, pre-fatiguing this muscle group. This move also warms up the knee joints. This not only prepares your body for heavier compound movements, where you using multiple joints such as with squats, but it also reduces the risk of injury.


* You can use any form of hack squats that are available to you, but today I’m going with an upright machine hack squat. I like to place my feet about shoulder-width apart and drop down below a 90-degree bend at the knee, but this is an individual choice based on your flexibility and level of comfort. Check out my video for more tips and an example of how to perform this move.

* Don’t forget to stretch your quads between each set of all these exercises.

* Get in RE-KAGED® immediately after training to help ensure you’re providing your body with the nutrients it needs to recover for tomorrow’s workout as well as your next quads workout the following Monday.



Leg extensions

5 Sets / 15 Reps

Rest 90 seconds between sets.

Hack squats

5 Sets / 15 Reps

Rest 2 minutes between sets.


5 Sets / 10 Reps

Rest 3 minutes between sets.


TIP: Squats are the granddaddy of all exercises. You want to use your full body to perform this move while you drive the weight using your quads. Hold your core tight and make sure that your body is properly aligned between each rep. And then rest 3 minutes between sets.


Check out my video for detailed tips on how to perform each of these exercises to emphasize quads growth.
