Default IFBB Pro on Partial Reps

Quote:
Always use full range of motion. That's the rule. But experienced lifters with bodybuilding goals need to know when to break that rule. Tips:

Novice Tip: If you're healthy, always use a full range of motion, especially while doing the basic movements. Squat all the way to the ground, touch the bar to your chest on bench presses and lock out fully, and do chin-ups all the way up and all the way down. Hypertrophy is much greater when you use a full range of motion as opposed to partial-range movements. I've been training this way since the beginning, thanks to being taught the basics from my Olympic lifting coaches. I've always done full ROM and I credit it, partly at least, with never having any serious injuries.

Advanced Tip: While full ROM is great, it's useful to try and extend your sets using partial-range movements, which are a good way to keep tension on the muscle and keep blood pumping to the area, leading to muscle gains.

Lifting in full range of motion = strength and mobility.
Doing partial reps = better pump and hypertrophy.

Full ROM on all sets and on your last set is when you do the
Partials after you can not do anymore full reps, and talk about the burn.
