    I'm 6'4" and disagree with reducing range of motion, but there are some things to compensate for leverage. For example bending elbows when doing pec flys can reduce that leverage and reduce the risk of shoulder injury.

    6'6" and I use a full range of motion. I think what he is trying to say is keeping tension on the muscle. He could have said it better...

    I kind of wanted to stop reading after "the right reps". I had no clue there was a correct amount of reps. Oh wait...

    6 ft 3 - and yeah i agree i think he used poor wording. He probably shouldve said just skip the lockout on bench and such, to avoid elbow stress.

    I'm 6ft4 as well. Don't squat below parallel?! Madness!! Every power lifter would disagree with you there.

    I think what he meant for right reps is the habitual stuff like >5 is more geared strength ... 8-12 is more of a muscle builder <12 is more geared endurance ... That doesn't mean that some don't aid the others ... U need strength to build muscle and u need endurance to gain strength

    I would think he was talking about going down all the way without locking out at the top, most weight lifters don't have problems locking out squats

    But if he is saying that, doesn't that defeat the purpose of lifting weights. Strengthening our weaknesses!

    Rep range does not effect hypertrophy.

    Rep range does not affect hypertrophy? Now that's something I haven't heard of?

    High or low reps, Progressive overload does.

    I have to disagree. While i do think ppl drastically overestimate the importance of rep ranges, they definitely do affect hypertrophy. Because the work in two different ways. Sets of 10-12 ish cause sarcoplasmic hypertrophy. Sets of below 6-8 cause sarcomere hypertrophy. While both cause hypertrophy, they do so in totally different ways with totally different end results

    I'm 6'4 and I fully agree with rest of the big & tall on this thread. I go to parallel on squat but that's where it stops. Other lifts just require a modification in the relevant joint to prevent injury and keep the muscles at work.
