    How about Romanian DL?

    Regardless, you have a well rounded routine.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    do you really need 4 different hamstring exercises...squats crush your legs..then you do leg press then seated curls, lying curls, and stiff legged deadlifts...sounds like a lot to me and if your doing everything 100 % way too much...but bend your knees a little when you do it...don't have to be completely straight

    An RDL is a stiff leg DL.

    Are you working on increasing your hamstring & lower back flexibility? Doing a stretch for 5 secs, then releasing for 5 secs & repeating this 15x will improve your flexibility every session. Definitely incorporate it.

    Do you do tradtional DLs on back days?

    When you do RDLs you're bending at the knee and stiff legs you don't.

    I will also suggest good mornings if you really require another hamstring exercise.

    exrx.net disagrees. What would be the difference between straight-leg & stiff-leg then?

    This thread should be over...gave you best option (hyper extensions)...the pull is nice and great compliment to lying leg curl.

    That's strange... I know they have a page for stiff-leg deadlift that has the hairy brunette man performing an RDL, they've had it for years.
    If I weren't on my phone I'd go looking for it.

    I really don't care what exrx.net says. The pictures of the exercises on their site look very different from the descriptions. The Romanian deadlift and the stiff legged deadlift have the same descriptions yet the stiff legged and straight legged have the same pictures. THat should tell you that something is screwed upt with their assessment of these exercises somewhere. As far as I'm concerned the stiff and straight legged are the same, and if you must refer to exrx.net I would use the description for the straight legged deadlift to do them.

    Personally I refer to the Deadlifting 101 thread. I have found it most accurate when compared to the majority of other sources out there. Especially with regard to Romanians which should start at the top while the others start at the bottom.

    just try doin regular deadlifts they are also concetrated around that part of the area. OR you can try to do romanian deadlifts which are like a faster pace to a regular deadlift.

    agreed


    also, i don't think hamstring inflexibility is a reason not to do it, it just means that you should use a smaller range of motion for it or like you said use Romanian DL. As time goes on you should get more flexible in that range, gradually.
    "...that's the great virtue of the free market, of the private market. It enables people...who hate one another...who don't speak the same language...who would fight one another if they had the chance, to cooperate economically. We were able to deal with China when China was a communist state. Even though we thought that that was a terrible arrangement, we could still cooperate. And that's what markets enable people to do. They bring freedom with them."

    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    First off, improve your hamstring flexibility - its not hard.

    Try some DIMEL DEADLIFTS!!

    A stiff legged deadlift/romanian deadlift is about the best thing for improving hamstring flexibility. I would advise that unless something is badly wrong then stick with it and focus not on the amount of weight but on the stretch.

    A good morning may be a less painfull alternative.

    okay everyone, just came back from vacation, checked this thread very happy to see so many responses.

    will take a few days to rep everyone due to recharges, but I will do it =).

    1. I have VERY weak and inflexible calves, and VERY inflexible hamstrings. I feel the stretch when I do the SLDL, but I just don't feel any soreness. I will continue doing them for the stretch, but I need an exercise to try and increase strength I suppose.

    2. there is so much information ha I don't know what to do. It is a constant debate for me; Should I do exercises that I am bad at and try and keep working on form?? (like SLDL) or should I just do a different exercise that I will benefit from and stop wasting my time?
    once again; do you continue doing exercises week in and weekout trying to fix your form (esp in cases it is limited by inflexibility); or do you replace it with an exercise that will be effective. I am not getting what I am supposed to be getting out of the SLDL at this time. =(
    I eat sleep dream football and baseball.

    Keep doing SLDL. It is the only way you will get better at them. Start light, very light and add 5 lbs per workout till it gets challenging. Then add 2.5 lbs if you can or just an extra rep per workout. Sooner or later you will get better and stronger.

    As an aside, I believe that squatting deep and heavy will be more beneficial that any hamstring only exercise.
