That gradual increase in resistance towards the extreme end of the motion helps build endurance/stamina (I think).

To me, when available, resistance bands gives a better workout. (But it's hard to find equivalent resistant band once you go past certain weights, that's the problem.)

Like you said you are no expert on muscle development.
