  • What exercises do you prefer to use partial ranges of motion?

    Just curious to get everyone's thoughts. In general research favors using a full range of motion for hypertrophy but I think it's completely viable to use a full range of motion for some movements...

    Calipers are not going to be accurate to within 0.5%.

    Considering 1 pound of metabolizable fat is ~3500 kcals, if you could really only store 400 calories daily then it would not be possible to gain more than ~30*400/3500 = 3.4 pounds of fat per month....
