After watching my friend barely quarter squat 3 biscuits with knee wraps was tempted to sic quartersquatgang on his bitch ass but thought better of it and chatted in between sets about it instead.
Going on a tangent here but I love quartersquatgang on insta. Have been following them since before they went private. Brings a smile to my face every time some unfortunate soul is reposted and then gets mass flamed leaving nothing but a charred husk of a deleted account. Reminds me of the movie The Dictator.
His Execllency, The Supreme Leader of all Wadiyans, Admiral General Hafez Aladeen, “The flames of the righteous attack the unjust.” lel
Anyways I’m usually not one to flame/roast someone without at least being partially constructive/helpful. A more measured approach, discussing the pros and cons of partial range of motion, is my weapon of choice. People much smarter and more experienced than I have already done all the groundwork and most of the thinking so I just paraphrase:
With Dr. Israetel’s guidance I was able to save my friend from the fiery but not very deep depths of damnation that is quarter squatting.
Much of what I write above is in jest tho given that partial ROM is often appropriate for athletic populations where joint angle specificity means quarter squat variations are highly effective.
Do you use partial ROM in your training? How/Why?
What’s the best (worst) example of partial ROM you’ve seen with your own eyes?
