Why practice in a riding positure you are never in during normal riding ?

imho, you cannot practice emergency braking alone

you need a random unknown trigger otherwise its not emergency its just a planned quick stop, no different than launching a mile except braking instead of accelerating

in a parking lot, have another person roll a ball in front of you from hidden positions at unexpected times, while you are in your normal riding posture
