    My current quad movements are

    Hack Squat 6-8/8-12/12-15. I typically use a mid foot placement, elevated heels on gym shoes and bottom out the machine

    It generally feels like I am destroying my quads during the movement, but soon after not so much


    Leg extensions 8-10/10-12.

    Single leg Leg Press 6-8/8-12

    I generally feel like I can hit quads the very next day. I see some growth but not at the rate I am seeing in hamstring and upper body and I feel like I have 0 VMO.

    Do you have any suggestions? Should I start increasing reps? Focus on negatives? Change exercises?

    Any feedback is helpful.

    2 things that make a lots of difference. Keep your feet as low as you can when doing hacks or leg presses without compromising stability. And on leg extensions go all the way down, dont cheat at all and when you start to fail try doing some partials at the bottom. Leg extensions are usually hardest at the top so you should still have little bit strength left for the lenghtened position. Thats just my 2 cents. Other than that, as long as you keep progressing in weight you will be fine either way. You could possibly increase a volume a bit too.


    Thank you both for your help. I’ve taken what both of you I said into consideration.
