The front squat is an exceptional exercise for building quadriceps size and overall leg strength. It also beefs up your upper back and posterior chain. It has significant carryover to the back squat in powerlifting, building aesthetic teardrop-shaped quadriceps in bodybuilding, clean and jerk in Olympic lifting, and notorious CrossFit workouts like Fran. If quad sweep is your primary goal, favor front squats when possible in your workout routine. Shifting the weight forward to the front of your body places more stress on the quad muscles versus the hamstrings and glutes.
Mastering the front squat can take some practice, so use a lighter weight at first while you perfect your form. Let’s say you always do bodyweight squats. To build massive quads, try more complex variations, such as the pistol squat, Bulgarian split squats, renegade pistol squats, and box pistol squats. These squat variations will hit your muscles from different angles while increasing your. The quadriceps (or quads) describe the four muscles located on the front of the thigh.
They contract together to help flex (or lift up) the hip and extend (or straighten) the knee. The quads often become weak after an injury is sustained or surgery is performed on the lower leg or thigh. For this reason, it is important to learn how to strengthen this muscle group for a complete recovery. Extend your arms out in front of you and slowly bend your knees, pushing your hips back to squat down.
Lower your body as if you were sitting back into a chair. At the bottom of your squat, your thighs should be parallel to the floor (or go as low as you comfortably can with good form). Finishing off the superset with some short-stride walking lunges will make the quads work even harder for the same reasons.

For example, you can work on quad size and front squat poundages for two months, and then transition to maintenance work for your quads as you work hard on your posterior chain and your low-bar setup over the next two months. Shallow squats predominantly target the quads, which are more active over the top half of the move. But by selectively doing partial squats—or machine hack squats—with heavy weight, in conjunction with full-range moves, you can emphasize your quads and build massive size.
The exercise touted as the best quad builder is the squat, and it’s an effective exercise. However, as with all other compound movements, your body will always strive to use the muscle or parts of a muscle that are best suited to do the job. Your body isn’t after balanced development, but rather survival.
Walking lunges, when done with a normal stride (when walking, have the front heel he nearly in line with the back knee to mimic best the high bar squat patterning) can increase.
