What did Dave Tate or ZiR RED say about the matter?
I might not be able to deadlift 700lbs. I might be weak as shit compared to some of you guys. I'll probably never be as strong as half of the people here, but I do research anatomy and physiology...and I do understand it. I spend three years in college majoring in physical therapy. I never made a B in high school. I might not be a performer, but my brain does understand things once I've read them.

I believe that a muscle can be worked through over-load without a full range of motion. It happens with the deadlift and the back muscles. It happens with the calves when you squat. It happens with the shoulders when you bar dip. And it happens with the abs in any exercise that requires stabilization. Maybe not ideal, but certainly it happens.
I also believe, and have been taught, that you really only need a balanced routine periodically to stave off over-use injuries. It will do no harm if you run a couple of cycles of specialization routines as long as you follow it with something balanced. It doesn't take that long to have things catch-up, especially if your routine is already using quality compound movements that create overload in the major muscle groups.
