Quadriceps Muscles: Structure, Functions, Exercises And More

We tend to use our thigh muscles for everything: sitting, standing, walking, jogging, running, etc. However, somehow, we don’t even know the name of the muscles that we use every single day. The muscles in our thighs are collectively called quadriceps muscles, more commonly known as quads. These quadriceps femoris muscles are the largest, strongest and fleshiest muscles in our body. They are found in the front and sides of the thigh bone(femur). They constitute vastus lateralis, vastus medialis, vastus intermedius, and rectus femoris.
