      All the clips of this dude are such a joke. I'm damn glad I dont go to their gym and have to see that bs in person. Maybe it's just a joke or something?

      boys i am going to tell you something about these jackasses. their is a reason that not very many ppl in this world look like bodybuilders and he is a prime freaking example. building strength and muscle is all about stretch and contraction and time under tension. i believe just like everyone else that in powerlifting and strength sports their is a place for partials negatives and such but come on man. i have a jackass old man like this in my gym he throws up 225 on the straight bar a does singles for curls where he slings it and his back is damn near paralell to the floor. he also puts 600 pounds and more on the squat rack and moves it a half an inch. he also loads up the the tbar row with 6 100pnd plates and the rest with 45s and does like a modified shug row or something. i cant believe he hasnt torn or hurt something bad.

      What a dumb ass. He's not even muscular, just fat as hell. I wish he did go to my gym. I would love to lmao in his face. I wouldnt be suprised if he couldnt even use 60s on the preacher curls. What a joke. I bet hes one of those guys that loads up the bar to bench 400+ lbs and barely even bends his arms.

      lol i seen him bench 405, spotter had ahold of the bar the whole time. I'd challenge him on any lift, actual reps that is.

      As funny as this may look- there is a place for partials and everyone should make room to do this as a part of your training- NOT the major part but a part- this is how you prepare your body to get stronger and lift heavier in the future- Most old time pros did this way. I do it this way etc. If you think all your sets should be done slowly and in a strict manner then you will never reach your potential.

      Totally agree...... Partials, 1/4 reps, Static holds ETC. will help break plateaus.
      but don't do em EVERY W/O.... once a month is sufficent in shocking the muscle into new growth/strength using those principals.

      Partials reps only strengthen the muscles at that specific joint angle. AKA if you do curls only extending your elbow 25%, you will only gain strength in that upper 25% of your range of motion, you WILL NOT get stronger at the rep ranges below (the bottom 75% in this case). So, if you have trouble locking out your bench....do partials in the top 25% of your range. If you have trouble coming out of the hole on your deadlifts, train partials at the bottom 25% of the range.

      When it comes to size, there really isn't a place for partials in my opinion, full range=full stimulation throughout the muscle=complete breakdown of actin, myosin, titin, the sarcolemma, etc. leading to greater hypertrophy adaptations.

      Also, if you look at the amount of torque applied to the elbow joint during this guy's preacher curls, there is barely any. Muscles cannot sense force, ONLY TORQUE (rotational force) which is force "opening" the elbow during a curl, pulling it into extension. If you look at that dumbell when this guy is doing curls, and think about the biomechanics, most ALL of the force from that 150lb. dumbell is being transferred downwards pushing his elbow down into the preacher pad, only a small percentage of that force is being transferred into TORQUE which is what pulls the elbow into extension and makes the biceps and brachialis contract to slow the extension/flex the elbow back up. This is why when the guy dropped the dumbell down to about 90* he couldn't stop it from falling to the ground (most of the force from the DB was then transferred into "opening" the elbow into extension, and he couldn't handle it).
