Yeah, you are definitely right. Same thing with hip extension and hip flexion. It's rare you see with an imbalance overly powerful hip extensors and weak hip flexors just like it's rare to see overly powerful scapula retractors and weak protractors.

I was just trying to make a point that you should always try to maintain training in the opposites category minus the exceptions .
