    That’s a pretty neat idea. I’ve tried several isolation movements for hamstrings since getting a home gym 2 years ago. Banded DB leg curl, looping a light band the DB and the rack works well for me too.

    With my wife, I noticed her ankle mobility was her weakness in the DB leg curl. She’s worked on form and can execute it pretty well now.

    When I started rotating a commercial gym back in, I noticed I liked leg curl machines less than using a DB. But leg curl machines are all different.

    OP forgot to mention one thing:

    You never wanna train the hamstrings by themselves, as they were designed to work with the glutes.

    Edit: I should have been more specific when I said bridges. While all of them involve the hamstrings, I prefer straight bridge holds AKA, reverse planks. The work the entire posterior hard, most people will have to work up to them though.

    AKA 'glute/ham raise'.
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.
