Question Trouble getting hamstrings to "activate" during deadlifts

With deadlifts.... I know the major muscle it works is the lower back... but should you feel it in the hamstrings at all? I feel like my hamstrings don't really "activate" much. I've rarely ever in the past felt much in my hamstrings from any exercises. It seems like my quads and other...

Deadlift form critique :) ?

I don't really deadlift, it's not really in my program that I'm following (only kettlebell and RDL) but I just did this one for fun at the end of one of my training days. I'm sure I could've gone heavier but as I said, it was at the end of a full body workout day :D I think the only issue I had...

Question bulking--training legs heavy enough with no squats or leg press?

OK, so I know that to bulk you eat at a caloric surplus and *lift heavy.* Long story short, I am without a squat rack or leg press machine or even a Smith for a while. I do have access to lying leg extensions and curls, plus barbell and dumbbells. I also have a TRX and an upper and lower pulley...
