    Method 1 for me. Never really hear of someone taking the approach of method 2. I sometime end my workouts with some kind of metabolic/pump set which is usually a bit higher reps, so i guess that's...

    The only time I’d ever intentionally use a partial ROM would be in a metabolic type sequence at the end of a workout with the specific goal of overloading certain parts of the range

    Definitely let it heal before subjecting it to any appreciable loading. You'll just end up injured for longer by rushing things. It's way harder to lose muscle than it is to build it. Get whatever...

    That sounds like an excellent way to just spin your wheels. I think swapping exercises every 8 weeks is way too often.

    That’s usually how it works. Second day after legs is always worse than the day after

    When it comes to those technical lifts, form failure is probably a more appropriate way to look at it. Which in that case, yes, nothing wrong with that

    Is it REALLY a muscle thing, or like a lot of society, me included, have you just succumb to sitting hunched over a computer or device most of the day and gotten comfortable with chitty posture?

    This.

    Highly doubtful you'll actually be at muscular failure with a weighted vest in the 30-40 rep range

    Big disagree. There are a lot of things free weights do better, lats isn't one of them. Mostly due alignment and arm paths. Neutral, shoulder width pullups and rack chins are about as good as it gets...

    "Diverging" and lat pulldown is an oxymoron. Anything diverging is going to be counterintuitive for lats, and moreso an upper back biased movement. Definitely avoid that unless you do it single arm...

    I'm not comparing bench and reverse bench. Can you not see how you can bring your arms on the same exact arm path with dumbbells?

    Don't get why people are so hell bent on this. You can get the same effect/ arm path with dumbbells with far better joint alignment.

    Pecs don't attach to the hands/wrist, so how you grip the bar...

    Best thing to focus on would be matching the arm path with the fibers you're trying to target, DB press or cable flyes are going to be your best bet. So a decent amount of elbow tuck and driving...

    I squat for quads, so I don't care about parallel. All I care about is knee flexion (hamstrings to calf).

    That could mean just parallel but with heel elevation, depends on your structure

    I think he said something along the lines of yes, there is some scientific evidence that some exercises may bias more prox or distal, BUT it's extremely unlikely that it's actually going to be enough...

    Looks crispy, just try to emphasize driving hips back a tad more if mobility allows (rather than thinking about bar up and down)

    Has no one mentioned it’s impossible to emphasize one end of a muscle more than the other? Upper and lower, sure, but growing inner vs outer chest does not existed
