Leg Exercises - Sissy Squat
Primary Muscles: Quadriceps, Gluteus Maximus
Secondary Muscles: Biceps Femoris, Semitendinosus, Semimembranosus
  1. Position your feet so that the top of your foot is securely resting on the bottom of the pad. Keep your chest up, shoulders back, head neutral and knees lined up over your ankles.
  2. Bend your hips and knees as if you were sitting back in a chair until your knee reaches 90-100 degrees of knee flexion. At this point your back should be straight but tilted slightly forward at the hip. If you find that you are leaning over at this position than do not go down as far and work into appropriate form for the exercise.
  3. Press back up through your heels to the starting position.

Helpful Hints:
This exercise can give you a great foundation for resisted squats. Focus on your posture.
