I am not a bodybuilder training for bodybuilding ideal, either (though I do admire the work they do in learning to have such precise control over various muscles and their firing sequences).

It was more from a 'bringing up the weakest link' perspective.

I have noticed that many of the guys who do lots of barbell training end up with very short / tight lumbar extensors and hyperextended lumbar resting position and have their guts hanging out in front of them because of lack of anterior core development.

If you don't have knee pain and you don't have visibly under-developed quads vs hamstrings then when you ask me about whether you should have a back extension or hamstring exercise I'm thinking the 4th thing (to complete the force couple) that you didn't suggest...

In other words... The thing you don't want to think about / do...

In other words...

Probably your weakest link. Probably the most neglected.

Probably the area that could stand for some 'beginners gains' from having been neglected...

Would be anterior core.

But I don't know, really. I haven't seen you. I have been neglecting it, myself.
