i see. yea, i was thinking that any single leg variation with a partial range of motion would hit the VMO hard.

you think pistol squats hit the VMO hard enough though?

varies from person to person. for real isolation your best options are TKEs and SL machine leg extensions while concentrating on firing your VMO. externally rotating your leg a bit and palpating the muscle can both help get it to fire.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: run 14+ km
monday: lift
tuesday: run 10-12 km
wednesday: run 10-12 km
thursday: run 10-12 km
friday: rest
saturday: run tempo/VO2 max/speed x 6-8 km

black lives matter

this x2 ^^

we used to do partner assisted TKE's: while seated on the floor, leg propped up on a foam roller, partner pushes down on the top of the foot and you just extend for those last few degrees.



i actually had a set of pistols "shut off" my VMO once.. waaay back, just tweaked it at the bottom of a pistol.. took a few weeks for my VMO to fire properly again.. was really weird. Did tons of TKE's to get it back to normal.

oh i see. well have no partner, but still gonna continue hitting TKE's hard solo. and i see. i really like pistols, so i guess ill continue doing them, but just gonna watch out for my VMO to keep firing properly.

damn this whole quadricep tendonitis thing makes things so complicating though. just wish i never messed up my knee with 1 foot jumping. if i didn't have this knee problem i think it'd just be going hard with trap bar deadlifts 3 times a week.

hmm, still have 1 foot dunking dreams here lol. guess i'm finally gonna get an MRI on my knee and see how it really is. then after that, just nothing but a lot of deadlifts, 1 foot jumps, and a bit of sprinting.

haven't deadlifted in a while so i thought i lost some strength, but am actually still touching 10'2 off 1 step pretty well. can't wait to get back to lifting though. gonna concentrate hard on my deadlift, feel like i can eventually hit 405 at around 155 lbs.

when i jump, gotta get out of my head that i need a long penultimate step too. i feel like i'm actually sacrificing height for the sake of just making a huge last step, so gonna cut that out.

still touching 10'2 really well off 1 step. 1 step vert in the low 30's i think? what i've gotta start drilling down in my head : height over penultimate length.

kinda sucks how strong quadriceps are so beneficial to two foot jumping but here i am stuck with an achy/clicky left quad tendon.

i forget.. but have you seen a PT? get that ish checked out if you can.. this has been going on for a long time.. and the clickyness symptom sounds annoying - tendon could definitely be jacked up.

get it checked!
