    I thought of asking this directly to your IG but knew there was a higher possibility of the message going missed and here I’d get a better answer.

    Sorry i knew this is going to eat my mind for the next few days (as the force-velocity relationship from Chris, on the training to failure video is doing right now). So may I ask

    There is any specific purpose on why ruff’s eccentric portion of his preacher curl reps end there and not fully extend the elbow to get a deeper stretch? I COMPLETELY stretch my elbow when doing them. I’ve been told by a bunch of doctors I’m hyper flexible or something like that, don’t know if that stretch might be unnecessary or potentially risky.

    Thanks Joe! Have an awesome Christmas!

    I’m not sure if because I’m in the app I can’t see the attachment I made but here I’m attaching the screenshot of the story again just in case, hope this time works.

    From what I know, on lighter sets you should by all means ensure you reach the bottom of the movement as it ensures you hit every possible fibre whilst strengthening the surrounding musculature to support at that range HOWEVER when going heavy it is not wise as it can tax joints quite badly

    What do you mean by lighter sets? Higher RIR (further from failure),warm up sets or just generally lighter weight like 7-10-15kg? How it taxes the joints exactly? It only applies to monoarticular exercises or also to an exercise such as the squat where it is usually recommended to go as deep as possible?

    Yes all pretty much clear, super interesting for me I’ve listened to it 3-4 times,good explanation.
    Just how do you assess or can say someone doesn’t has stability in that precise range of motion? It is just as easy as to see that they start shaking a little bit on that point?
    2. It is worth starting to do work on like you said start on air moving that joint, then progressively moving up and adding more and more weight as you are able strength the surrounding muscles,like someone above said, to stabilize on that range?
    3. It could be of help or at least considered having something or someone help him (asking for the case of a general athlete and Terrence) stabilize and take load off that range of motion? Like “spotting” him by putting a hand under the forearm through that part, that way the athlete still can get sooome work on that range of motion. Or is it too complicated stupid risky and unnecessary?
    Thanks again Bryce 🙏.

    I had another question on other post about cold showers topic, should I mark it just like this one or you already saw it yourself?

    All clear Bryce! Related to that topic I might have another question related to myself and my sensations when doing pull-ups and chin ups. But I’ll leave it for other post to give you a break, and later on after I test a bit!
