Full Range of Motion vs Partial Reps
You see them every time you go to the gym - the guys and gals who
cheat. Not on each other, mind you, but on their workout. They arch
their back as much as a crossbow during the bench press. They heave
the weights upward during the curl. And most of all, they only
perform partial motions during almost all of their lifts.
Partial lifting has its place, but it should never be employed as a
constant. That is, a partial range of motion, particularly using a
power rack, can be used to help you move past a sticking point. There
is an entire scheme predicated on this approach, called power rack
partials. However, such an approach should always be cyclical and
never become a mainstay in your training.
For the best results, it is vital to employ a full range of motion
when lifting. That's because a moderated range of motion only
partially develops the muscles. And for bigger muscles, you want
fully developed muscles. The wider a range you can put the muscles
through under a work load, the better. For instance, when you go all
the way down in the squat, you engage your hamstrings much more than
does a partial range of motion.
Full range of motion training is especially important for the guys
who want to build an athletic body. To perform all out, you have to
train all out. And the broader a range you can engage the muscles,
the more fiber recruitment you can spark, and continue to hold under
Of course warming the muscles up prior to a full range of motion
movement is vital so that the muscles are ready for the challenge.
After the muscle is warmed up in a full range, put it under a
workload for the full range. A full range of motion activates more
fibers and keeps those fibers firing longer. That is, the muscle has
more "time under tension" - one of the key factors for facilitating
Some people default to partial range of motion because it is simply
harder to perform a full range of motion. But it is also better to
get into that full range of motion. Massive muscle recruitment and
time under tension do matter, both for building muscle and improving
the athletic capability of the human body. Aside from some specific
cheating cycles, stick with a full range of motion approach to your
training as your base approach.
