Iron Cross Squats – Quadriceps Exercise Guide with Photos


Exercise Advice: This is a combination exercise which works your quadriceps as well as your shoulders. To start, grab a dumbbell in each hand and hold them out in front of your body with your thumbs up and your arms fully extended. At the same time, you will be in a full squat position with your thighs parallel to the floor. As you bring yourself up out of the full squat position you will simultaneously perform a lateral shoulder raise, lifting the dumbbells up and out with your arms remaining fully extended throughout the entire exercise. Return to the start position and repeat.
