    What is best exercise for the Vastus Externus (outer Quad muscle)

    I am somewhat of a newcomer when it comes to legs. I have always avoided them at all cost. Now that I am somewhat maturing into the sport, I could use some help getting those "Quadfather" legs. I would really like to hit the outer muscle as hard as I can. Would that just be plain old squats, or is there any good combos? Any advice would be great. I saw some dudes on this site with legs that were about a foot and half thick, if you guys could answer first that would be great.

    ThanksJCC

    narrow stance front squats

    In general, narrow stance is for outer quads, wide stance for inner in terms of squatting and quad usage.

    See my profile for a pic of my thighs.

    These came from Starting Strength: squatting heavy 3 days a week, and deadlifting once a week. 3x5 sets across on the squat and 1x5 on the deadlift.

    My squat form: feet shoulder width pointed 30 deg out, knees out, squat below parallel, low-bar position.
    The more you know, the more you squat.

    Its Vastus Lateralis.

    And squat. squat like there's no tomorrow. at least twice a week-don't even think about leg extensions and curls.

    My advice, squat on mondays and thursdays at the beginning of the workout in the form of 4 sets of 12/9/6/6 reps, adding 10 pounds each set, maybe only 5 on the last set of six. But increase EVERY workout (some days you just can't, be it lack of sleep/nutrition etc.). After squatting, move to your upper body stuff but make sure you get a good stretch. Try this for 4-6 weeks before you consider having a "leg day."

    In addition, if that isn't "enough," throw deadlifts in after the squats with the same rep scheme.
    One Word: STAND.
