Agreed the discussion is pro and cons of partials either heavy or light, let’s keep it there please (if you wanna discuss max strength there is a wicked thread still available called Bear strength or something not sure if still available tbh)
We have to remember the force time curve and also apply this to muscle mechanics! The reality is a full squat will never be able to fully cross over with full contraction either eccentric or concentric at the top end of the range where the muscles are strongest.
It is within this range that we are in contact with the ground either when jumping or at top sprint speed
Also worth considering the tendon actions within heavy partial :-/
I can’t change my I’d name but my twitter is there lol haha
