Knee Flexion

Is the Lower body knee flexion dominant exercise group an important part of a leg day? Do you guys incorperate it into your worouts?

I’ve been training for 10 months, currrently on a 3 day upper/lower split. I’m training for strength - for any other stats just ask

I’m just curious seen as its listed as in the newbies guide part II as an exercise that should be included yet from scanning journals both here and elsewhere it seems to be neglected somewhat

Its not that important, unless your an athlete. Im assuming your asking about leg curls, or GHR’s.

Instead focus on hip extension. Same muscles, but worked a little bit differently.

Squat
Deadlift
Stepup
etc.

Correct

Heres what my lower day currently looks like:

Sqaut/Deadlift*
Bulgarian split squat
Good mornings
Leg press**

*I alternate each workout
** Once per month- I’ve quad dominance issues

I’m thinking of adding stiff-leg deadlifts too
