Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    feet position

    the vastus lateralis can be developed by squats. The feet position and KNEE position is very important for this.

    the feet must be pointed straight, not slightly at an angle away from the body as is usual when doing squats.They must also be close.the distance between them would allow your foot to fit in snugly between them.

    regarding the knees.As u go downkeep them pointed str8 towards you( iam assuming u do squats in front of a mirror.

    You will need to reduce weight as for is very important for this.remember u go to the gym to build muscle,not lift weights. Form is very important. I have had very good results with this technique. so much so that my phsyiotherapist GF actually thinks my patella has deviated laterally due to an imbalance between my lateralis and medialis.

    Yeah man,Im doing 105lbs squats right now and getting the form perfect.
    Most people who squat dont know "squat".Theyre form is bad and they their thigh dont grow...

    Since i concentrate on feeling the muscle working,my thigh have been growing pretty fast.
