Building the quadriceps/teardrop muscle on the thighs

Barring the hack squat machine (which I don't have access to), what's the next best way to build your quadriceps on the thighs? I don't have much mass to begin with, so I'm just focusing on squats.

Bodybuilding - better results w/o pressing, squats, DL's?

Read many articles by bodybuilders/professionals: "OH pressing not an effective shoulder builder." "Stop benching for chest development." "Squats and DL's overrated for bodybuilding" Do you think you can build a better physique (more muscle) without these lifts than with them?

Medical reasons or suggestions that prevent muscle growth?

All my life since 16 to 40+ years old I've always had a physical limit around 140 lbs lean. I can get fat but I can't put on more muscle.
