Long Arc Quads - PYF

In this video Cindy is demonstrating Sitting Long Arc Quads.  This exercise strengthens the muscles on the top of the thigh.

  • Sit back in your chair so that your thighs are supported
  • Firm your stomach, but be sure not to hold your breath
  • Straighten your leg from the knee down until fully straight or as tolerated
  • Don't go to the point of lifting your thigh off the chair
  • Hold for 3-5 seconds
  • Lower your foot back down to the floor

Perform 5-10 reps, 1-2x/day

The number of exercise repetitions and sets per day are just a suggestion and should be adjusted, as needed, to fit your fitness level and tolerance.
