Quads VMO Specific Training

βœ–οΈ Quads – VMO Specific Training

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ Our Vastus Medialis Oblique (VMO) aids in patella (knee cap) alignment and ultimately where the knees track.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ The VMO is under most tension 15 degrees out of leg extension and 15 degrees out of knee flexion.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ 1/4 reps in both the bottom and top positions of Squats and Split Squats is a great way to hit this particular area of the quadriceps.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ If you’re not able to Squat or Split Squat due to knee pain, a more remedial approach would be the banded exercise included in this video, focusing on squeezing the quadriceps to extend the knee against the bands resistance. I’d go for 3 sets of 25 reps – feel the burn!
