    Not following through the ROM

    Long story short - Several trainers at my gym follow the advice of one larger trainer. Now when they lift, they don't do a full ROM. For example, when doing bent-over-rows they'll get about 6 to 8 inches high, stop and go down. They do this with every exercise. Is there something I'm missing here? Is there a reason for doing this?

    They get to use more weight and look stronger.

    I think partial reps have a place in an advanced lifter's routine, but they should not be in a beginner/intermediate lifter's routine. Also, if your gym is anything like the general public's gym, these guys are probably tools and are beginner lifters themselves

    I know genetics come into play a lot of the time, but it just seems odd that these trainers can be very large by doing mostly partial reps. I have no idea what their diet is like, but if it's anything like the advice they give most people, I don't know how they can stay as big as they are.
