Ask the Trainer: Strengthening Legs

Question: I need a good upper-leg exercise, and to strengthen my quads. Do you have any suggestions?


Answer: I would recommend leg presses, squats, leg extensions, and lunges - all of which are great for the quad muscles. Always make sure to work opposing muscle groups though, and work your glutes and hamstrings. Lunges, squats, and the hamstring curl machine are great for those areas.
