A was describing my pre-season training routine to a freind; cardio, agility, and some specific weight training (squats, leg extensions and leg curls). She advised me, with leg extensions and leg curls, that I should avoid fully extending the leg. She said that a full extension placed too much stress on the patella, and suggested that the knee should always remain somewhat flexed. I haven't heard this before and it sounded to me that reducing the range of motion isn't the best advice. Has anyone else heard this advice?
