That was part of a quote Ox that I posted up it wasnt aimed at you or intended to offend, i think you took it a bit out of context. i even said in my initial post that people try to go ATG to just look badass. I am more interested in a full ROM for the individual rather than having to go ATG all the time. i think a full ROM on ANY exercise is better than a pertial one. i know partial reps can be used as a technique but personally i wouldnt recommend them as standeard practice no matter what the exercise, be it Benchpress, BB curls or squats - whatever. like i said mate, that part of the quote which you picked out was not calling you or anyone else out for your opinion it was just part of a longer explanation. Sorry if it did cause offense

I seek to go past parallel but like Carl said, "I don't train with a particular range of motion." I seek to train with good form and control.

My butt isnt far of 20" from the floor when i am stood up

I am the same make up as Steve that my calves and hammie touch about a couple of inches below parallel, any further and i am literally pushing myself down which i dont recommend. Like I said i think the key is a full ROM for you, whether that be Parallel, past parralel or ATG. I dont agree particularly with 1/4 squats as a constant (it you want to do them for a specific reason then OK), but for me all exercises should be in a full ROM to be most effective. just my 2p worth
