Squat Variation to Load Quads More! πŸ’ͺ

βœ–οΈ Try this Squat variation to place more load on the Quadriceps!

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ The more we bend our knees the more we use the quadriceps.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ The greater amount of dorsiflexion we have in our ankles, the easier it is to bend the knees more on the descent of the squat, and in turn push our knees over our toes!

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ This setup gives you artificial ankle mobility. In placing our heels higher off the floor our knees can push past our toes whilst keeping the torso more upright in order to maintain our centre of gravity (like squatting in heels🀣) In doing this it places far more load on the quadriceps (and knees) than your regular flat foot squat stance.
