Single Leg Knee Extension Isometric Push – Barbell
HOW: Begin this exercise with a heavy barbell on the squat rack, one that you will not be able to move. Get set up with the bar resting on your shoulders in a single leg position with a slight bend in your knee and hip. From here, push up into the bar trying to straighten your knee and push for the prescribed amount of time.
FEEL: You should feel your quad muscle working as well as the muscles of your leg working as you try to straighten your leg.
COMPENSATION: Maintain an upright vertical position as you perform this to best recruit your quadriceps muscles.
