    Default 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 its fine if they do full range as well. Thanks for the post.
