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

--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.
I finally get how a fullbody routine works .No need to make my own routine up I will use this workout that has all the natural movements over 2 days.

Workout A

Squats 5 x 5-10
Bench Press 5 x 5-10
Pull Ups or Power Cleans 3 x 10
Barbell Curls 3 x 10
Weighted Situps 3 x 10-25
Workout B

Deadlift 5 x 5
Seated Overhead Press 5 x 5-10
Barbell or DB Rows 3 x 10
Dips 3 x 10
Calf Raises 3 x 10

thanks for the help
