Quadriceps Exercise Guides – Photos and Instructions for Legs


The large group of muscles on the front of the upper leg, often referred to as the thighs. Your quadriceps are so named because they are a group of four (quad = four) different muscles: the rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis, and vastus intermedialis. The quadriceps run along the front of the thigh, starting at the hip joint and ending at the knee joint. The quadriceps’ primary function is to flex the hip and extend the knee, very important in walking, running, jumping, climbing, and pedaling.
