Which one is better for developing the quads? Squat or Leg Extention?

Depends what shape your quads are in now, if they are in need of a little size then opt for the barbell squat cause its a compound exercise that involves all the leg muscles as well as core strength etc. but if its cut you looking for, then i's say the extensions. do a stack and strip - how it works is you do a set of 15 with enough weight to feel the burn, then drop down to 12 add more weight, down to 10, then 8 etc till 4 each time adding more - then no stopping, stip off the weights, do 4 take off some, do 6, then 8 till you back up at 15 and light! remember that body fat also has to be low in order to see the muscles you have worked hard on. good luck!Source(s): personal trainer
