This is the real take home point. It took me a long time to stop thinking of fullbody workouts in terms of bodyparts.

It's better to look at them in terms of natural movements, and natural strength planes.

--Pulling towards the body.
--Pushing away from the body.
--Pushing overhead.
--Pulling down from overhead.
--Lifting off the ground.
--Squating and standing.

It took me a year to finally stop trying to squeeze in X number of sets for each bodypart into the confines of a fullbody.

For hammies, squats and deadlifts will do plenty. From there, you can either do a HLM style ala Casey Butt and add in leg curls on Wednesday, or add in RDLs somehow if you feel you need more hammie work.
