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?

    Alternative to DB squat?

    I can no loger do DB squats because the weight has gone up so much that I can't hold the DBs by my sides for long enough. And I don't have a squat rack so I can't do conventional squats.
    What do you think of these two excercises?

    And
    http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/...plitSquat.html
    This second excercise, DB split squat looks more like a lunge than a squat.
    Thanks.

    DB Lunge.

    Step ups onto a platform/bench.

    You are going to need a rack for front squats.. but lunges would be a good alternative.

    I already do lunges, and was told on another forum that lunges are good but you will not see much gains if you do lunges without some sort of squat.
    I may opt for the step-up squat.
    But what about the split squat, is it really a squat or just a stationary lunge?
