My Quad Finisher

August 26, 2013 by danny · Leave a Comment 

I’m a couple weeks into my current  block and thought I’d share what my quad finisher looks like.  For this training block I’m using a full body program, lifting 3-4 times per week.  At the end of day 2, I finish with the below “finisher” …

10 Barbell Jump Squats

10 Barbell Reverse Lunges

10 Barbell Squats

I do that with the same weight on my back, and then rest 45 seconds and repeat.  Only this time, after my last rep of squats, I pick up a dumbbell and perform a dumbbell squat iso-hold for as long as possible. To see what it looks like in action, here you go…

Bring The Pain!

Not. Easy!  Especially if you try to beat your time from the previous week.  And as you can see in the video, I added 5 seconds to my squat hold.  My quads were on absolute fire.  Trying to beat 35 seconds on the hold next week should be real “fun!”

Anyway, give it a try.  I dare you! ;)

How I feel after this quad finisher!
