Quadriceps Exercises with Bench
The quadriceps (quads) are a group of four muscles on the front of the thigh. They allow your knee to straighten and provide stability when standing. Your quads are the most important muscle group for maintaining the ability to stand and to walk independently.
It is also believed that arthritis pain can be relieved by strengthening the quadriceps muscles which takes pressure off the knees.
A weight training bench is a piece of equipment that has a resemblance to a normal (e.g. park) bench, but is cushioned and designed for use in the weight room.
Weight training benches come in a wide variety of designs: fixed horizontal, fixed inclined, fixed in a folded position, with one adjustable portion, with two or more adjustable portions, with racks to hold a barbell, etc.
The burpee with jump up on the bench is a beginner plyometric exercise. This challenging exercise targets the shoulders, core and legs and is a great beginner conditioning exercise.
