The sissy squat is a great tool to zone in on VMO development, aka, the tear drop muscle that serves as a critical stabiliser for knee extension, overall knee capsule stability and speed development.

Here Director Ben is using the sissy squat as a finisher to his leg routine. Trust us, at the end of the session, just body weight itself is more than enough!

To ensure you exhaust all your fibres maximally, start by leaning your torso backwards to increase the loading on the eccentric movement. Once exhausted, immediately follow that with a ‘drop-set’ with more reps, now with your body closer to the pivot point, thus making the exercise easier.
This mechanical advantage technique effectively allows you to use your body position to change the loading without having to change the actual weight used πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ’ͺ🏻.
