-Leg press with feet close together and toes pointed in
-Ditto for leg extensions

I asked this on the Universal forum a year or so ago and got these responses...both have worked great for me. I think the most important thing is to have a somewhat narrow stance with whatever you are doing in order to hit the outer part of your quads.

See the outer part of the quad how it has a nice flowing look?

Goes from the small to big down to small?

That's sweep, and Erik (The House) has one of the best pair of legs in the business - not really going to see much better legs than that.

Narrow Stance Leg Press + intentions
(the intention for this exercise would be to------on the negative/positive try to drive your feet outwards, but obviously they wont move, neurologically the quads, outer sweep as the targeted area of the muscle that will fail first before any other muscles kick in)

This can be done with squats, hack squats as well.

Boom!

/end thread!

haha, no don't end it!

Makes sense, always try to keep your knees from tracking inwards when doing any leg movement - far too many people do it and take all the stress off the muscles they are trying to grow.

Actually try bringing in your knees togethere during leg extensions, much more quad activation!

Haha, I was talking about presses, your knees can't really track inwards on leg extensions...
