Top Quad-Quaking Exercises of Julian Smith:
1. Feet-Together Barbell Squat:
Julian’s usually calls this exercise “the meat and potatoes of quad development.” In which he uses an inside shoulder-width stance shifts used to focus from the glutes to the quads.
Julian usually does 4 to 6 sets of a different range of reps. Depending on him, He sometimes goes for heavy weights for lower reps, And sometimes goes for light weights for higher reps, and sometimes mixing the higher and lower weights in same session.
Julian’s squat exercise is not piece of cake for everyone and most of the people will not be able to do it easily, He does this because of the ankle mobility he has and will not be easy for someone to do so with their feet together. But not so worry about it because It also took him years to get to the point on which he is and everyone should appreciate the struggle…
2. Bodyweight Sissy Squat:
This exercise is very helpful for the lower body. Julian says: “Just like the pull up, pushup, or dip, the sissy squat is a foundational bodyweight exercise that must be mastered if you want to max out your quad gains.”
Q: Why is this exercise so effective? A: The more your knee travels forward past your toes, the more directly you stress the quadriceps which helps your quads in being strong and takes the problems like glutes and hamstrings out.
Julian says: “I always go to failure on these, as I would on most bodyweight exercises! I hit around 3 to 4 sets but I mix up the tempo frequently, which drastically changes the amount of reps I get per set. If I do just a basic up-down tempo I could go as high as 50-plus reps per set. But I often do 10-second negatives, which would push me down closer to the 10 to 15 rep range.”
3. Leg Extension:
The leg extension exercise targets your quadriceps. If this exercise is done correctly, it strengthens your quadriceps.
Q: Can you build great quads without the leg extension?A: Absolutely. There are different exercises also which helps us to build massive quads. (Julian prefers this exercise) Q: Can you max out your quad development and achieve the level of muscularity and definition that Julian and other top bodybuilders have? A: Probably not.
Julian claims that “If you want to add size, you need to hit your compound, multi-joint moves like squats and lunges. But if you want to add that sharp detail and crisp feathering, leg extensions are a must!”
He (Julian) himself recommends 4 sets of 20 and sometimes 30 reps on these. When he occasionally dips into the lower 8 to 12 rep range with heavier weights, he uses full contraction pauses or “quad squeezes” on every rep with his knees fully extended to get the proper output.
4. Machine Sissy Squat:
There are many fitness freaks but this one is quite remarkable. This amazing beast making exercise is Julian’s favorite quad-quaking one. This exercise is of advanced level and usually builders take years to reach here
Q: How necessary this workout is?A: Julian quote this one “old school with a touch of new school,” because in this u advance to a higher level and try to make it more higher. Standing on a bench or somewhere else allows your knees to go further than that of floor would otherwise. This move is surely the best way to build the desired quads if it’s done continuously and properly.
Smith suggests 3 to 4 sets with a very calm and controlled 3-4 second going down your body in every rep. Now it’s your turn to start doing these exercises in order to be a beast like this guy Julian.
