    Smile Medial hamstring exercises?

    I'm looking for some exercises that will really isolate the medial hamstring..... Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I wouldn't worry about it.... between SLDL/Romanian Deadlifts, Hamstring Curls and Glut-Ham Raises we're pretty much out of exercises to pick from, it's kind of like calves and forearms, there's really not much to pick from. I say just swap your execises around every now and then and maybe toy with foot positioning on things like hamstring curls, aside from that just hit them hard and you'll be good to go.

    You look really great btw., I wouldn't fret over weak points.

    Well, you can't really isolate it that well...

    but any adductor work where you're also contracting your hamstrings will work. However, adductor force at the knees may put a bit of pressure on your MCL so I'd be careful.

    TBH, I'd just stick with the conventional stuff mentioned by BigLifter.

    Assuming you are referring to the semimembranosus & semitendinosus, on top of the other suggestions try using the seated leg curl instead of the lying.
    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Not isolation at all, but sumo deadlifts, sumo stance Good Mornings and sumo KB Swings are all good options.
