    Hi Joe, do you think there is any benefit to training a muscle in its shortened range before it’s lengthened range i.e leg extension/leg press before squat (due to hips being in a flexed position or lying hamstring curl before a seated leg curl (once again because of hips allowing the muscle to be further shortened in a lying curl)? It’s just because I’ve always programmed “bigger movements” aka chest presses before flys etc first but feel they can take away from the “smaller movements” rather than vice versa.
    Many thanks

    Appreciate that thankyou very much. It’s something I’ve been curious on for a while due to hearing that a muscle is it’s weakest in the shortened range and fatigues the earliest so training there first and then putting volume into a lengthened range could be more beneficial. But thank you for clearing that up and putting that to rest 🙂
