The quadricep muscles run along the anterior or front side of the thigh and are responsible for extending the knee and partially flexing the hip. Injury of these muscles is most frequently observed in high-speed activities that require explosive movements such as sprinting and jumping.
While temporary rest may be important initially, recovery from this type of injury requires the implementation of resistance training type exercises that specifically target the quadriceps. These exercises are extremely important as they work to improve integrity of the muscles, which means the likelihood of suffering another injury reduces greatly.
If you have suffered a recent quadricep strain, the exercises shown in this program will help improve muscle strength and integrity, reduce pain and enhance overall function.
