Alts for Whammy Quads

The front squat is an exceptional exercise for targeting the quadriceps. Still, it can often be uncomfortable, especially for those new to the movement, due to the demands it places on shoulder and wrist mobility. To address this, we've curated a list of 11 alternative exercises to strengthen your quads without the discomfort.

Among these alternatives are the safety bar squat, Zercher squat, and high-bar back squat. The Zercher squat, for example, offers a similar challenge to the front squat but eliminates the need for wrist or shoulder mobility by holding the barbell in the crook of your arms, allowing for closer body leverage. We delve into exercises like these, providing detailed breakdowns of each movement, including when and how to perform them for maximum quad development below.

No athletes boast larger arms than those in the Men’s Open division. And if you want to at least attempt to grow your biceps to Olympia-worthy proportions, you need to study the playbook laid out by bodybuilder Hunter Labrada. He adheres to a four-day split routine, dedicating one day exclusively to biceps and triceps.

For this routine, Labrada emphasizes unilateral exercises to ensure both arms achieve symmetrical muscle development. He also incorporates cable exercises to maintain constant tension on his biceps and triceps throughout the full range of motion. Pay close attention to the form he employs — it's honed to perfection, positioning him as a formidable contender for the 2024 Mr. Olympia title.
