The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

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?

    Targeting inner and outer quads?

    Are there any excercises that can target the quads so that you can emphasize the inner and/or outer quads.
    Thanks.

    I dont think there are to any real degree, just do full ROM squats and they will get bigger and they will fill out naturally, try to increase the weight a tiny bit every week and dont worry if ur not doing huge weights, just fo what is hard for u, you will be suprissed how they change shape just give it a year of squatting and be patient, ohh and eat like your obsessed to put on weight which helps when building legs.

    One thing - Never sacrifice form on squats, you will potentially injure ur back and knees (its very bad for knees if u dont go to horizontal becuase all the reverse momentum energy ends up on ur knees depite what the average guy down the gym may think).

    Good luck

    Some people, ie. Milos S., say you can. Some say you can't, IMO I feel an area working harder during a different exercise. I feel my tear drops get activated alot more during lunges than I do squats.

    I've read that doing squats with feet pointing inwards or outwards has an effect on which part of the quad gets emphasized. Any truth to this?

    JConrad, I'm curious, what do you weigh and how long have you been training?

    Not much and not long.
    My legs are the part of my body most in need of improvement. My calves are improving but my thights haven't got visibly bigger yet, unlike the rest of my body.

    That's what I thought. At this point all you need to worry about is gaining weight (though Cressey might disagree ) and lifting heavy. The growth will come in time.
