Default Leg Curls, Squats and Hamstring Strains

This might be an odd coincidence, but 3-4 times a year I receive a hamstring strain when squatting, and it's usually when I am also currently using (fairly heavily) leg curls.

It's to the point where I am concerned about using isolation-style hamstring work.

The strain usually occurs in my later warm up sets when the weight is still relatively light (275-315). I always take my time in warming up, and ramp slowly.

Just wondering if any of you have any thoughts on this...
