    Not if I can help it - this way, I get constant tension on the muscles.
    If you're growing, you're training/eating properly.
    If you aren't growing, then you aren't doing the above 2 properly.

    Your not supposed to, but i find myself doing it every now and then. Try not to do it so much though because it does keep the tension on the muscle your working on.

    I lockout, because I don't I feel I'm not my full range of motion, but I don't stop, I lockout and then right back down with the weights.
    I see some guys get on the bench, push out like 3 reps with 135, and then stay locked-out for about 20 seconds to "rest" then they try another rep and fail and lower the weight

    this is a metter of preference. If you are concerned with functional strength, acheiving lockout is important IMO, when the fuk are you going to keep the tension on the muscle when exhibiting strength in the real world? pretty much never, esp. for chest

    This is isnt functionalrealworldstrength.com buddy! Sorry, but when it comes to actually gaining muscle, you cant think about how your lifts will come in handy in real life...

    Yea I lockout on some exercises whats the big deal?

    If i'm squatting heavy I can't just move straight from 1 rep to the next without locking out (even if it is for a 1/2 a second).

    When i'm doing any kind of pressing movement and I wanna fight for 1 more rep. I hold the bar up for a second or two....gather myself, and go for my last rep.

    I lock out tricep exercsies to get a peak contraction.

    Lock out leg extensions...

    Whats so wrong with locking out on some exercises?

    Constant tension is a better muscle stimulator.

    There is a difference in certain exercises, W8 or slippy could tell ya exactly what I'm talking about. There is a difference between doing an overhead tri ext and a tri press down. You lockout at the bottom of a press down, but not at the top of overhead ext. It depends on whether you start the exercise with the muscle in a stretched position(tri press down) and not(overhead ext). Sorry I couldnt be more scientific here, but I'm just learnin all this stuff myself.
