    Joe, Bryce.

    I have access to some prime fitness gear and was wondering are they some good rules of thumb using them?

    On every piece I use,should I be exhausting the short range first then extend the set with the lengthened?

    I’m also assuming I won’t need as many sets if I do them like this.

    Thanks.

    Really your goal should be matching effort throughout the ROM with these pieces. Think of this equipment as a tool such as the band or chains.

    You have an opportunity to match the profile of the machine to your body which is what makes them unique.

    For instance, the Prime Supported Row, 9/10 times almost of your load is going to go in the lengthened range (too peg). In the start of the range, the load is heaviest, and as you contract throughout the concentric range the load drops off more and more. This matches the profile of your back. Strong in the stretch, weak in the contraction.

    Like Bryce said, we use them 90% of the time to just make a good profile. And stay there. It’s not ALWAYS this way, but most back pieces put the weight on the top. Chest pieces are middle/with some individual variability. Legs are mainly top peg (leg extension middle). Most of that is based on “best” profile, some personal/professional opinion
