The goal of this workout is hypertrophy/growth of the muscles of the quadriceps that cross the front of the knee and hip. We will accomplish this with a high repetition routine using resistance that allows us to engage or "squeeze" our muscles for better contractions. Work the quadricep muscles in three separate sections.
Section one is all bodyweight. Exercises include seated knee extension and squats.
Section two is all dumbbells, with squat and lunge variations that emphasize the knee.
Section three is thigh band variations with hip flexion and knee extension vatiations in standing and seated position.
The combination of these exercises allow for sufficient recovery to challenge quadriceps muscles and move with a consistent pace. You will need a chair for a few ot the exercises for support.
The hip is a very complex joint, capable of moving in many planes of motion. By comparison, the knee's structure is primarily capable of flexing and extending. Muscle weakness in these joints can cause pain and tightness. This can make exercise positions difficult to access.
