Makes sense. Ive gone to more 3/4 range of motion work lately as well and I like it. What kind of weights are you hitting on the reverse curls? Ill give the ex rev. curls a shot as they seem to mimic how I pull outside. I love thick bar reverse curls though so will probably alternate them. Thanks again buddy,
I like to use the EZ curl bar for reverse curls as well. I find it puts my wrists in a more comfortable position. I've done these both standing and on a preacher and like them both so I try to alternate.
As for hammers, I really think these can help your backpressure alot. I think these very closely mimic the movement of a high driving post and have found my strength improvements here translate well to the table. I have not found a comforatable way to do these on a preacher so I do these standing mostly and occasionally sitting.
Even though you dont like doing them.. unless they cause you pain I'd tough them out. I try to do full range movements mostly but I do occasionally bang out some heavy partials (very well warmed up though)
