    Well Ichigo states in his fight against certain someone that he doesn't want to use his bankai against weaklings. So he doesn't go full out if the enemy is not strong enough.... cause there is no need.

    EDIT: Shit, i forgot this was the TV section. :(

    cause if the enemy aint that strong you don't have to use full force.
    its like using a gun to shoot a rat in your house, when you could use rat poison.

    Not really, it's actually a good question.

    It's pretty weird as well that Renji is fighting/training with Chad, who is much weaker than Renji is. You can't really say that Renji's bankai is more suited to help Chad train either, because it's quite similar to his shikai and bears no training advantages whatsoever. Maybe it's because Renji urgently needs to get used to his bankai?

    ^There's a clear difference. Remember, Ichigo is learning how to master his hollow, not the bankai. If he went bankai along with his hollow transformation, he would probably instant-pown his trainer (her name currently escapes me). You don't learn anything that way.

    Renji on the other hand is training Chad more than Chad is training him. By going bankai, Renji can give Chad a challenge. Remember, the teacher should usually be stronger than the trainee, not the other way around or the trainee will not learn anything.

    He's training to control and maintain his hollow-trans for longer periods of time, not to increase his power. Fighting with shikai makes that an easier task.

    Even though he's training to maintain it longer he's still getting his ass whooped.

    you get more results from your training if you make the training more difficult. ichigo fighting in Shikai is like Rock Lee fighting with his weights on.

    besides. Ichigo does not know how to restrin his release of power. even training as he is now and behind those barriers Rukia was able to sence him. If he was in Bankai there would be this huge beakon in the middle of the city that dissapears at the building pretty much screaming "SOMETHING SECRET IS HAPPENING HERE AND IM NOT GONNA TELL YOU WHAT" which means every one would be trying to find out and defeat the purpouse of hiding.

    Yoruichi explained that Ichigo has one of those perma Shikais that are constantly released due to his spiritual power.

    Because Bankai consumes more Spirit power and his human body can not hold it for long and no need to get tired for opponents who might be weak enough.
