How important is 'time under tension' and the ROM of exercises for muscular development?
I've always typically never considered this variable much, although im certainly not performing partial reps, I've noticed my squat could be a little lower (sort of power squatting opposed to "ass to grass"), along with a few other exercises. Would the 'decrease' in performance and weight in favour of a longer ROM be beneficial for my training, which is mainly targeted towards physique over performance?
I also tend to move weights from point A to point B? Am I getting to caught up in things or should I also be really concentrating on working the muscle on the eccentric and controlling the movement fully back up? Again I'm not waving the weight about like an idiot I'm just curious if it's something that should be considered in training.
Many thanks in advance!
