Sorry guys, I really don't want to clutter up someone elses thread too much, I'll keep it short...
@Blaze: I received my undergrad in Kinesiolgy specializing in Biomechanics and am currently entering intern clinic as a chiropractor specializing in sports. I am also a Corrective Exercise Specialist and Performance Enhancement Specialist through the NASM. I honestly dont think a lot of those credentials matter, though, since any numb-nuts can get through schooling...but those are my "credentials".
And I came across harsh...didn't mean to, my apologies. I just hate it when someone calls what I say "bullshit" without having a sweat clue what I was even getting at. Just because it baffles doesn't mean it is BS.
@ajweins: Yeah, what you are saying is close to what I was getting at for sure. I am not sure why someone else couldn't just suggest that instead of accusing me of baffling cause I can. It is not only about active versus passive ROM, but you are a lot closer.
The reason I was suggesting that my fellow poster above didn't know what he was talking about, even though I was lashing out of temperament, was because telling someone that training only two muscles in only 2 parts of the ROM will fix a movement problem just doesn't work a lot of the time with athletes with a good strength base.
It is like saying you are going to fix someone's pullup by training them in a full hang position and a fully flexed position only. You and I both know it wont work, because they have to correct the motor pattern from start to finish, not just at the top and bottom, where different muscles are easier to isolate.
Anywhom, sorry for starting trash in here. Obviously a whole lot more could be said on the topic, I just hate being pigeon-holed. As for the OP, I think that
