Sample Chuck Sipes Routines - Part Six






Routine 26 - Six Days a Week


Monday/Thursday: 

Leg Extension, 2 x 50
Heavy Quarter Squats (no lockout), 4 x 15



Sissy Squats, 4 x 8

 - Stand in an upright vertical posture next to a stationary post, rack or chair, etc. With knees slightly unlocked, place your feet approximately 12 to 18 inches apart, with heels inward and toes rotated out laterally, just slightly. The feet should be about 13" apart and the knees about 17" wide. 

 - To maintain a perfect balance in this quadriceps exercise, lightly grasp hold of the stationary post with one hand. Now, with just your own bodyweight, rise up on your toes, or if you wish, place your heels on a 4" x 4" block of wood. Lean your upper torso backward (approximately 45 degrees from vertical) until you feel a maximum stretch contraction in the quads, especially just above the knees. Your upper torso and thighs will be in alignment with one another if you have done this correctly. 

 - While maintaining this inclined, lying back position (you will basically be at a 45-degree angle to horizontal position), slowly lower your body by bending your knees, allowing them to thrust forward. Allow the upper torso and thighs to descend to where the shoulders are directly over the heels and beyond. Do not relax at this point. Keep continuous tension on the quads by doing a smooth direction reversal at the bottom of the negative stretch (approximately parallel to the floor) phase by straightening your quads and driving your hips forward until you are once again at the non-lock starting point. 

 - Remember as you come up to push off on your heels while pulling the front part of your foot up off the floor. Begin the next rep immediately. With absolutely no pausing, continue until you have completed 4 sets of 8 reps in nonstop, nonlock style.
