    Quad training

    My question is can you in a noticeable degree, increase a specific portion of the quads? Specifically around the knee area, and if so what exercises? Bill

    Bill wants the Teardrop.....don't we all.

    There's no way to empasize certain parts of a muscle, whether it's your inner chest, or lower quads. Just work on increasing overall leg mass.

    Here's a pic of Tom Platz for inspiration:

    Picture didn't work, Saint.


    ...but to the original poster, lower your bodyfat and you'll see it. I'm neither very big nor very lean right now and I have it. It looks like a teardrop or a second kneecap.

    Well I was curious because some say certain exercises help develope this area more. I usually do mostly squats and leg press with some occasional extras. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything. This is what I read (another board) hack squats feet up high wide for the inner and opposite for the outer, also leg press feet close high on platform+ leg extensions. In short are most in agreement that overall leg size is the main factor?
