    Dumb science Black folk shat on people doing partials for years, calling them ego lifters who should be doing full range of motion. Now suddenly a new study comes out saying that lengthened partials are good so they all jump on the bandwagon and say that if you do partials you're actually a smart basedence based lifter unlike all those dumb meatheads.

    All exercise science does is "discover" stuff that broscience found out decades ago.

      You are partly correct, but there's an important distinction. Long length partial doesn't mean moving a shit ton of weight an inch during the concentric beginning portion of an exercise. It still requires range of motion. It doesn't mean ego-lifting works because it depends on the exercise.

      Don't act like partials are infact better than full rom, the benefits of partials is targeting weak points and that's it.

      Neitszche argues that morality is social law, enforced by state religion and its adherents.
      Science, for an atheist state, I argue, is social law enforced by state non-religion and its adherents.

        "Ethics" is the new social law. Science is simply used (misconstrued) as tool to enforce it. Just as the church used (misconstrued) the word of God to enforce their laws.

          I bet that would actually work though. If it weren't for.. you know.

    The advantage they give is minimal. It's hard to standardize your range and I really like the squeeze.

    All it means is that you should not be a "full ROM robot" and that going beyond failure with partial or cheat reps is still giving you plenty gains.

    Personally think it’s a misinterpretation of what bodybuilders are doing. The range of motion you often see bodybuilders do is t because they’re trying to do ‘long length partials’ it’s because they’re going by feel and they can feel the tension shift to non-target muscles at a certain point during the lift (ie tension going to triceps at the top of the bench press) so that’s the point at which they end the range of motion in order to keep constant tension on the target muscle

      How is he selling long length partials? He puts out videos for free about possible advances in the science and always couches it with "This might have an advantage in some cases for some people"

        He makes money if you click it.
        >always couches it with "This might
        And when it doesn't you'll click some more.

        Oh wow guess he's just a selfless humanitarian helping us all with overly complex fitness advice nobody needs.

    baby reps are surely better than dropsets or static holds. As long as you do full ROM till failure It doesn't really matter. Lot of people skip the stretch part of every exercise for some reason

    Partials themselves are great when used appropriately such as avoiding lockout in a BP to keep tension on the muscle or avoiding positions where a muscle has poor leverage such as around flexion shoulder flexion while training the lats with pulldowns (your nervous doesn't recruit muscle fibers that are not needed or cannot work effectively for a motion). Consider the bicep curl nippard is doing.

    The reason training the bicep only in the top half of the motion doesn't work is for two reasons
    1. active insufficiency is achieved = muscle fibers not working and greatly reduced tension
    2. when you lift your arms at the top of the movement as is common, you deload the muscle since the weight is in a stable position.

    You also get a reduction in tension around the fully lengthened position as the structure of the skeleton starts to carry more of the load (like a lockout during bp). Not only that, the biceps themselves have poor leverage and a disproportionate load gets placed on the tendons (snap city). That being said, Nippard is not doing "lengthened partials." Lengthened implies that you are lengthening the muscle. How do you lengthen the biceps in a way that allows you to effectively train them? You do drag curls. You pull your elbows back during the motion which lengthens the long head.

    It's not necessarily that lengthening the muscle will result in more gainz in general. It's more along the lines that you might be deloading the muscle and reducing fiber recruitment in certain parts of the range of motion. Lengthened partials themselves are a meme. You want to train muscles in positions where they are strongest and keep them loaded there. Not necessarily where they are longest (you might pull a tendon in some cases doing so).

      Lengthened partials work. Strongmen don't shrug for their traps.

    There is something I don't understand about lengthened partials. You basically take the hardest part of the lift and then only do that. So if you can do 10 reps at a weight with full ROM, wouldn't you just also fail after 10 reps of lengthened partials? Sure the top half of a curl gives you less growth, but still some, how would lengthened partials be superior to full rom? I don't understand the mechanism?

    I should probably just try this out myself for a sessions. But to me the reverse sounds a lot more intuitive. Do full rom until failure and then optimally do shortened partials to "go beyond failure" for extra work.

    >do partials at the part of the lift where the muscles do the least amount of work and your tendons are at the largest risk of injury
    This "science" shit has gone out of hand.
