You’re dead tired, surrounded by a growing puddle of your own sweat, and a cloud of chalk. You’re putting it all on the line, giving everything you’ve got to get the most out of your workout, so why would you ever short yourself on range of motion? You only get out of your training what you put into it, and when you cheat range of motion you’re only cheating yourself. Going through a complete range of motion every time builds strength throughout the entire movement. Maybe you want to be faster than every other name on the board, but the most important person you’re competing with is yourself. If you don’t get below parallel on a squat, lock out an overhead press, or get your chin over the bar on a pull-up, you’re not really giving the most of yourself, and therefor not getting the most out of your efforts. We’ve got a little chipper Thursday, so be sure to continue to put out the effort we’ve come to expect, and make every rep count.
