    So general consensus is go to chest level and it is not harmful to the shoulder joint?
    Thays whay i usually do but been hearing so many people say just at chin level or just below chin level is fine,
    honestly been doing that latley and obviously I can lift more on it now with the few inches less of ROM, but I have also noticed more growth in my delts. But I’m thinking maybe just the change in weight even with decreasing ROM shocked my muscle and broke my plateau

    I do know some guys will use heavy ass weight and loosen up on their form and decrease ROM on purspose just to get some extra Weight up and use it as a plateua breaker, could be a useful tool as long as you are safe about it and don’t use it as the bulk of your program

    Don’t squat below parallel, you’ll blow out your knees.

    Use excessive weight whilst quarter squatting to break through plateaus.

    That about right?

    This is how I set PRs. Though “quarter” might be a little generous.
