hamstring exercises


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about hamstring exercises within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: ok my gym sucks!! i do squats for my main exercise, but all they have for hamstrings is a prone leg curl machine. the one with the independant legs. so all i have been doing for hams is straight leg D/L's; or romanian D/L; or the prone leg curls. any suggestions for exercises i can do with such limited equipment. looking for a variety.

    From what i have been told, stiff [strait] leg deads are super for your hamstrings.... With those and the leg curl machines, i dont know what else they make for hamstrings.

    My gym really lacks in the equipment department. I doubt that yours has a glute-ham machine (I understand they're rare). If they have a pulley station, try some pull-throughs. They really work the glutes and hams.

    http://www.elitefts.com (sorry I can't get the link tool to work) has a video of these being done.

    45% leg press machine? High, wide foot position usually hits those hams!

    I love stiff legged deadlifts... they hit mine like NOOObody's business... Squats hit mine too ... combinding the two exercises really do the trick.

    Now... thinking about these Zercher... thingies I keep hering about...
