Why do people do quarter reps? : Fitness
Theres a couple of causes to do it on objective. Squat lockouts/pin squats, rack/block pulls, and board press/heavy bench holds are all partial lifts that I incorporate semi frequently to assist reinforce parts of the large three lifts the place I discover a susceptible level. Or, when it comes to heavy holds and squat lockouts, it is to assist acclimate my frame to a heavier weight that I see coming over the horizon. By practising with that heavier weight, I am getting my tendons and ligaments (which reinforce a bit slower than muscle) robust sufficient to maintain that weight, and construction self assurance with it. So that by the point I am getting round to making an attempt that weight via a complete ROM, I have treated it dozens, in all probability loads of occasions.
Then, the opposite facet of the coin. People who do not understand that they are doing partial reps. And that in point of fact simply boils all the way down to ego and loss of coaching/ wisdom
