Full ROM with a slower tempo and no bounce is going to be the best for hypertrophy. Focus on getting a big stretch, pause for a second, then explode up to a full squeeze at the top. People like to talk about going to failure, but honestly, volume and TUT are going to be more important than how painful the set was. 10 sets of 10 that don't hurt are basically the same as 4 sets of 25 with lots of burn, and the work can be done in almost the same amount of time because much less recovery time will be needed between sets.
