    Hack squats with the feet about 6 inches apart and the toes pointed towards the corners of the platform. Do them slow and controlled as your knees are in a delicate position. This will do more for your teardrops than anything else.

    no doubt about that. I have been concentrating on these the last month or so, and have seen way better development in my teardop of my leg.

    thanks

    hack squats gave me amazing results at my tear drop not to mention added mass all around my quad

    Good call. Stance can go out to shoulder width. Heavy and deep in a controlled manner. Will definately help the inside.

    Any squat movement

    For the inside Feet wider

    for the outside feet close

    Front squat
    Hacksquat -place heels on block for greater stress on quads

    Goodluck ~

    I concur. Heavy, deep front squat. Deep is defined as below parallel in my book. If you can't squat below parallel, especially front squat, you need to work on your ROM and flexibility first...probably not the answer you wanted, but the road to the top ain't paved in sugar and chocolate.

    front squat, leg extension. One thing i do when i do my leg extensions is point my toes slightly inward at the top of the rep and squuuuuuuueeeeeze pause for one sec and let it down slow. That will isolate the vastus medialus for you creating a tear drop effect.

    It puts more stress on the quad but more stress on the joint as well.
