This LAQ workout strengthens quadriceps

White Scribbled Underline

Quadriceps exercises that target all four muscles are optimal. The quadriceps in the front of your leg elevate the thigh and extend and straighten the knee. Strong quads improve hip flexion and knee stability, making walking, running, jumping, squatting, and climbing stairs easier.  

If you want to get your quadriceps working properly, a simple exercise that you may do is the straight leg lift. This is the correct way to accomplish it.
