The portion of the lift where you feel your muscle stretch causes them to grow. If you aren’t feeling the stretch when you’re lifting weights you’re leaving a lot of opportunity to build muscle on the table.
The portion of the lift where you feel your muscle stretch is likely pivotal to muscle growth. We’ve seen multiple studies suggest that stretch aids in building muscle. It’s particularly pivotal to growing glutes and hamstrings. I would still suggest using full range of motion while training but make sure you get a deep stretch when training your glutes and hamstrings.
