Here’s what you need to know…
• For hypertrophy, it doesn’t really matter what the exercise looks like as long as it puts the muscle under an optimal load/tension. Accordingly, some of the biggest bodybuilders on the planet rely heavily on partial reps.
• If you can’t feel a muscle working in an exercise, you can’t stimulate it or grow it optimally. Isolation work will fix this problem and even improve your compound lifts.
• You can build muscle with almost any kind of rep range. If you train consistently and try to gradually become stronger in the rep ranges you’re doing, you’ll grow muscle with 3 reps or 20 reps.
