In this post, we’ll unpack all you need to know about Range Of Motion, defining exactly what it is, the difference between Full & Partial Range Of Motion, how to leverage it and more.
What Is Range Of Motion?
Range Of Motion (ROM) refers to the amount of degrees a given joint flexes during movement.
Full Versus Partial Range Of Motion
Full ROM refers to extending a given joint through an absolute range during movement.
Partial ROM refers to extending a given joint through a shortened range during movement.
How To Leverage Range Of Motion
Studies suggest that it takes a combination of both full and partial movements to stimulate the entirety of a muscle.
Therefore, the key to leveraging ROM with the goal of optimising muscle growth is to combine both full and partial movements into one’s training program.
