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.
