A - Z Blogging Challenge - Quads & Quizzes

Welcome back to A - Z Blogging Challenge. The big day has arrived. It's Q Day.

So I've been going easy on you in terms of working out; today it is time to do some leg work.

There are three major muscles in the anterior thigh: the pectinous, sartorial and quadriceps femoris aka Quads = musculus quadriceps femoris = four-headed muscle of the femur.

Typical exercises to train your Quads include Squats and Leg Presses:
