What are some exercises to get your quad stronger?

What are some exercises to get your quad stronger?

Lots of choices: But the main exercises that trainers will start with are sprints (focusing on bringing knees high), squats (you don't need to use weights if you are just starting), if you have access to a stair master machine - that is also a great quad exercise. Lunges are also great for the quads, as are leg extension machines if you belong to a gym (since the primary role of the quad is to extend your leg). Read more

What weight exercises can a C5/6 Quad do? I have a Uppertone machine but it is worn out. What can I do to get in shape that costs very little.

C5/6 QUAD: Hello KevinF14, to correctly answer this one has to do a neuro exam to see what movement you have at that level, because C5/6 involves biceps, triceps (C5, 6, 7), deltoids and rotator cuff and rhomboids and trapezius, serratus anterior, so you only have levator scapulae to shrug. I would have a trainer or PT evaluate your residual movt to accurately respond to this thx Read more

The right path...: Looks like you are doing a lot right having improved your ejection fraction and exercising regularly. I have had patients live long and strong after bypass because they ate right (Mediterranean), exercised, slept well, had strategies for stress-relief (meditation has studies behind it) and good relationships. Ask this? Of your cardiologist but I think they will agree... Read more

Did sprints 10 days ago in the cold. Still feel soreness (continue to exercise daily). Did I strain my quad muscles? How long will I be sore?

Muscle strains (depending on severity) of the quads in your age group can take 2-6 weeks to heal. Best to avoid sprinting or fast jogging for ~4-6 wks to avoid re- injury. Gl! Read more

After a vigorous exercise, my quads are extremely sore, causing my legs to buckle when I walk. What steps do I take to heal, and prevent more injury?

Don't push so hard!: 1st drink plenty of water to rehydrate. Then take it easy ie no exercise for next several days until you're better. Next time, don't push so far, so fast, so hard. Yes, you still need to exercise but not to that extent. In meantime, do stretch all your muscles, especially the sore ones. And keep exercising those muscles that don't involve the sore ones.
