Quad sets help you build and maintain strength in the muscles on top of
your thigh. With this action, you are “setting" these quadricep muscles by
holding them tight. Do 8 to 12 repetitions several times during the day.
If you feel discomfort under your kneecap, try putting a
small towel roll under your knee during this exercise.
