Weighted Sissy Squat

The weighted sissy squat is an exercise primarily targeting the quadriceps. In sissy squats the knees travel over the toes, placing the quads under a fairly extreme stretch. So yes, these will make you unbelievably sore! They are usually performed for moderate to high reps as part of a lower body training session.

Benefits

  1. Builds and strengthens the quadriceps
  2. Holding onto a support decreases balance challenge
  3. Simple way to progress from bodyweight sissy squats when they get easy
