I’ve Front Squat as my primary exercise for the quads and have been progressing really good on it lately. The only problem is that I barely feel it my quads - or only if I go high reps > 10.
I would really need infinite amount of sets and reps to feel my quads with blood with this one. I’ve a much better contact with the Back Squat, but since my butt-wink is back on track I can not do it.
I find it really weird considering that I’m in an upright position with I do front squats and there are basically no other muscles that can do the job quads are doing…or I’m just pretty good at bouncing out of the bottom with reflex…that wouldn’t surprise me.
Anyway, I’m looking for tips on how to activate quads a bit. I’m thinking of doing some leg extensions - really light. But this one has to wait as the gym I’m using for the summer does not have a LE-machine.
I also use Olympic Shoes with elevated heels which should further emphisize the quads, but …I still have not managed to get them sore with front squats and I’ve been up to 10 sets per training of FRONT alone and my eyes were through the spleens on the last sets. I can usually train them again in 48 hours.
Here is the video of me with 235 pounds, I’ve added another 15 to the lift since it.
