You may not know the importance of full range but it effects you in more ways than you may realize.
First off, it breaks down scar tissue.
Scar tissue is developed when our bodies get an injury or a tear. It’s a very normal part of our bodies healing process. Another amazing thing our bodies do!
When we get a tear or injury our body forms new cells to help heal the body.
When you go full range while weight training this helps remould and align the collagen fibres (the new cells that are formed after injury or tear) that help the muscles, tendons and ligaments become healthy tissues again.
Simply put, full range helps repair injuries and tears, once you are ready to work these areas.
Secondly, full range helps work the smaller muscle groups that surround the larger muscle groups.
This not only helps our basic lifts in the gym, like the bench press, it also decreases the chance getting tears and injuries while weight training.
Another great reason to do full range is it helps keep our bodies flexible by stretching the muscles and tendons.
Doing half reps don’t look near as impressive as doing full range reps.
So, if you’re just working out for double takes and how great you are, go full range.
Your body deserves do be at it’s best all the time. In the gym and out of the gym.
