The quadriceps femoris (quadriceps extensor, or quads) consists of four muscles on the front of the thigh: the rectus femoris, the vastus medialis, the vastus lateralis, and the vastus intermedius. These muscles contain predominantly type II (fast-twitch) muscle fibres. Its main action is to extend or straighten the knee.
