i do exercises, that if possible dont require me to stand up much,

like sleeping?
I am totally another opinion i train as much as possible standing.
Clean & press is a great example of a Full body exercise.
Can even do barbell complex workouts. minimal equipment & trains everything.

I prefer exercises where as much of the body is involved as possible. Standing while doing arm exercises inherently involves some leg muscles (even if only balance muscles), torso, etc.

sitting down throwinga short rope round your foot, and pulling with both arms whilst , whilst forcing your leg out is also close to a full body mov3ment,( after youve done both legs, obviously) and infinetly adjustable

i also do l sits, they do quite a lot too

The seated exercise actually limits recruitment of the lower core and upper leg muscles (because you're stabilized just below the waist, and perhaps above if leaning back against a chair back). But it does do a good bit more than an isolation exercise.

They don't get really upset until you drop the bar at the end.

its back to isometrics, you dont axtualy need a resitance at all to develop strengh / muscle, just the ability to recruit enough muscle fibres, to over load the muscle, which takes time to develop your ns

you need a range of motion too. no athlete has ever trained only on isometrics or we can talk about plyometrics?
a sprinter will use plyometrics but he will also do barbell squats.

well no you dont, isos work circa 15 degress either side of the point of hold, so you just need to do three in different postions to get a useful range of strengh curve, or 5 if you can be bothered, which i cant

as it is i tend to do holds in the part of the stengh curve where im weaker

OK so sprinters do no squats? or Box squats.
