Full ROM for more Gains.
Gains in muscle size are specific to the range of motion used. Partial range of motion movements will only isolate a specific portion of the muscle whereas full range of motion typically develops the entire muscle – both quarter and full squats resulted in similar upper thigh growth but only full squats developed the lower thigh as well. Therefore, utilize a full range of motion on the majority of your exercises and use partial ROM movements as a tool to bring up lagging body parts!

I really hate when I see people doing half two stuff. I mean it’s fine if they do full range as well. Thanks for the post.

Do full ROM and then some partials.
