Tip: The Leg Press for Quad Sweep

Keep your feet low, heels closer together and toes pointed out to really hit the vastus lateralis.

Vastus lateralis (outer thigh or quad sweep) development is crucial to an impressive upper leg in bodybuilding. When this muscle is large it makes the thigh look wide and somewhat round instead of being like two lamp posts: straight up and down.
