Hip extension is pretty much THE "athletic" movement. Most people have imbalances with too strong quads as opposed to hams & glutes. Posturally and occupationally related... sitting... + bad movement patterns. Can never have enough glute/ham strength.

Also, anecdotally I've heard leg extensions tend to be... not so great for the ACL.
