Your leader is correct. By using, as you put it, the extremes, all you are doing is wearing out the chain and jockey wheels (the small cogs on the rear gears). There is no need to use these gears as you have almost the same gear in a different combination. eg If you have a triple chainset with 42,32,22 teeth and a 7 speed cassette with 14 to 28 teeth then with the chain on the big ring and big cog you have a gear of 39". With the chain on the middle ring and the 3rd largest cog (20 teeth) you have a gear of 41". As its normal to have a difference of about 6" between each gear a 2" difference is negligible.
