  • Muscle hypertrophy and partial ROM

    What’s your opinion on partial ROM for muscle hypertrophy?
    i know some people like going to failure in an exercise and try to blast out a couple more partial reps for “extra tension”. Would this do anything for hypertrophy?

    Partial ROM and full ROM for hypertrophy have varying results in the literature. Some studies show no difference with respect to hypertrophy and others are in favor of full ROM. What you're discussing is a bit different however, and I don't think taking sets to (or past) failure is beneficial for hypertrophy outside of isolation exercises some of the time.
