    Full range of motion or not; strength training shorten the muscle facia(s) and connecting tendons. Training antagonist muscle and/or streching may help somehow..

    Are you telling me that squatting deep will inhibit my ability to squat deep? That deadlifting will make me unable to bend over and pick things up off the floor? Does not compute.

    As usual you seem to be more interested to pull up a random strawman than to learn something about basic human physiology! Is benchpress a compound exercise, and what happens very often to those benchpress "bros" that forget to train their antagonist back muscles?

    The same that happens to typical nerds that sits too much in front of a computer, shortening of muscles and tendons related to pectoralis major, pectoralis minor, deltoid anterior etc. and a physiological imbalance that makes a perfect set-up for a muscle or tendon tear...

    Gorbag, you're arguing against a self created argument again. Who said you should train only one side of the body?

    Why don't you ask your "brother in arms" RichMahogany about that? He's argument seem that if it's only full range motion then everything is well, which it's not (Cf. post 51).

    I don't think anybody here is advocating an imbalanced barbell training regime.

    Of course you're right, but Gorbag likes to find way to contradict every single thing I post, regardless of how much straw he's already used up. He's got some weird man-crush on me. It's understandable.

    Maybe he's got a thing for barbell-built bodies?
