Increased Range is Gains Deficient Exercises

Increased Range is Gains Deficient Exercises

Using a step or box is an easy way to increase the range of motion of an exercise. Increasing the range of motion of an exercise will increase the hypertrophic response. . One of my pet peeves with seeing people use deficient exercises like the deficient lunge pictured in the first video is that THEY DONT EVEN USE THE EXTRA ROM. . On my reverse lunge, I am going completely down to the floor and taking advantage of the deficit set up. More hip and knee flexion for more quad/glute/hamstring action. . If using a step or box, GO DOWN THE ENTIRE WAY and take advantage of that deficit!
