What would you recommend for quad weakness that causes difficulty standing from kneeling?

What would you recommend for quad weakness that causes difficulty standing from kneeling?

Various quad sets: Depending on your activity level and whether there is patella (kneecap) problems, there are many safe exercises for the quads. I do not recommend knee extension and knee flexion machines, which can make knee problems worse. I prefer straight leg raises, exercise bicycle, and gentle (slow) stairclimbing. Forcing yourself not to limp will also help. Lunges and squats are more difficult but effective. ...Read more

How come I ejaculate quicker when my wife is on top in the squat position. The friction is more intense why is this in this position only?

Intensity: Can vary during intercourse depending on the position, the partner, the level of lubrication, etc. Sexual positions play a large role in the level of intensity/depth of penetration thus making the level of pleasure either increase or decrease depending on the intensity. With your wife on top, there is likely deeper penetration and contact between the genitals causing you to ejaculate quickly. ...Read more
