Did I not previously state that it’s more likely to produce more work with a greater ROM in a previous post??? Also, is it really necessary to do more work?
A different matter altogether is each of those articles you posted support not going with full ROM in squats because of stress on the knee joint. If you wish to supplement an argument it’s typically not best to use studies were the conclusion validates the person you are trying to contradict. Both suggest never going beyond 90-135 degrees which was my point with 1/2 squats and never having to go beyond parallel which is typically slightly less than 135 degrees.
I don’t think it’s wise to ignore work performed since it directly affects power.
Power = work / time
