Sissy Squats in a Rack

Target Your Quads with Modified Sissy Squats

The original version of the sissy squat exercise can be very challenging, this modified version is a safer and easier alternative. The primary target of this movement is the muscles in the front of your thigh, the quadriceps. I like to perform them after a thorough warmup or at the end of a lower-body or leg workout. It can be quite intense and the load can be precisely adjusted with the help of several adjustments like holding onto the frame or adding extra weight to the movement. This set-up can replace the sissy-squat rack so you can save some space in your workout area. If you are handy a doorframe can be set up in a similar way at your home.
