Fitness Tips For 4/20/2016
Leg Extensions before Squats
Do THIS before you squat
The squat is one of the most challenging of all exercises but perhaps
you have been doing it for some time and it has become old hat.
There is a great way you can add a new dimension to the squat and
that is to perform some pre-exhaust work prior to squatting.
One of the best pre-exhaust exercises for the squat is the leg
extension. The leg extension will do several things. It
pre-exausts the thigh muscles. It warms the leg muscles up. And it
helps the knee area move in the right tracking action.
You don't need to perform a ton of leg extensions before you get into
the squat. Just a couple of working sets will do the trick. Start
with a warm up set, then perform two sets with a high repetition
range (15-20 rep). This will have your quad muscles burning hot and
ready to go for the squat routine.
Get in a warm up squat set or two, then get down to work with some
full range of motion squats, getting low and exploding out of that
low position. Pound out the reps, even though your legs are on fire
from the leg extension work.
Perform 3-4 working sets of squats, getting in 5-8 repetitions per
squat, and using a heavy weight load. Even though your legs are on
fire, focus on maintaining good form for every repetition. Allow a
moderate rest (a minute and a half) between sets.
The pre-exhaust sets will make squatting tougher but will also make
the workout very effective. Use an eight-week cycle for the
pre-exhaust squat routine.
