    Default This is a test.

    If you lie down on your back and lift up a leg while keeping it straight, do your quads contract?

    Dude,
    I have absolutely no clue if you're kidding or not (seeing your second post)...

    Anyways, yes, the quads contract just because the biggest, strongest hip flexor happens to be the biggest, and strongest quad muscle. The rectus femoris. It tenses during hip flexion, which is why the quad happens to contract as well (same muscle).

    Besides, keeping your leg straight requires knee extension, which is the quad's job.

    "Another crap post" is what someone wrote on the "rep" thing.

    The vastus lateralis and vastus medialis remain mushy. I can lift my left almost entirely without these muscles contracting.

    No one cares to answer this question? It's quite simple, and only takes a second.

    So can no one even try this test? It only take a few seconds.

    Because mine don't, and I think it's an indication of what's wrong. Unless my leg is completely straight, the vastus medialis and lateralis are almost complete mush.

    Just to ask, are you pulling your kneecap up? I can make VM and VL contract on the floor if I do.

    If you're not, and I am no one's idea of an anatomist, I thought it was one of the other thigh muscles that did the hip flexion, so it seems like it should be possible.

    Either way, why is this an indication that something is wrong?
