How do I use partials correctly in my routine? Should I use them at all?

Partials, where you work through only a portion of a particular movement, are very valuable to bodybuilders because they help you overcome weaknesses on certain exercises. If you are benching, for example, and you are unable to do a complete rep with a heavy load, this inability may be due to weaker triceps. Most athletes have trouble with the bench between the halfway point and lockout at the top of the rep, and training in a power rack or Smith machine lets you start at that sticking point without having to worry about the bar falling on your chest. You can therefore make the toughest part of the movement much easier by training to overcome it without risking injury.
