I understand. The only question added based on your response is. Why would I ever do a lying leg curl over the seated leg curl or better say not over but in addition? For example if I have a workout for hams where I have
3×8-10 reps seated leg curl
2×8 reps lying leg curl
Wouldnt I be better if I just did 5 sets of seated leg curl since in that exercise I have my hams fully lengthened as opposed to the lying version where I cant achieve the fully lengthened hams as I am not hip flexed? I know that I cant really achieve fully shortened hams on the seated version for the same reason because in order to achieve the fully shortened hams I would have to have my hips extended
