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?

    Is this good for quad mass gains?

    I remember at school the PE teacher used to make put our backs flat against the wall then sink down until our legs were at a 90 degree angle (so that the thighs were parallel to the floor) and we has to stay like that until there was only one guy left. It used to hurt like hell and really made the quads burn.
    Would this be at all useful for adding mass to the quads?
    Thanks.

    Just do squats. You're not planning to replace squats with these or anything are you?

    Just using your bodyweight will not be enough to gain mass.

    Wall sits are more of a mind exercise than anything. Also it's an endurance exercise.

    Just do heavy squats.

    Yes, definitely. That's a great exercise. You just have to slightly modify it. Try it this way next time....

    1. Don't prop your back up against the wall, but rather step away from the wall.

    2. Don't remain in the 90 degree bent position, but rather move your body from an upright standing position to slightly below 90 degrees of bend and back up again. Repeat between 5 and 20 times focusing on maintaining good form and natural spine curve.

    3. Don't do it with only your body weight. Add a loaded bar onto your shoulders.

    If you do these three simple modifications, the exercise you just described is simply fabulous at making your legs massive over time.

    No of course not, I'm just looking to add a little to my routine. I think they could be effective for warming up, or I could do what beatlesfreak suggested, which is probably the way to go.

    What beatlesfreak suggested was doing squats, which is what everyone suggested.
