If you are deadlifting and squatting to parallel or deeper, your hams should need minimal direct attention (unless you have clearly identified them as a weakness). Just remember, you can only max so many goals at once.
Sounds like the hammy groundwork and squat frequency you laid down should serve you well for a heavier program.
You should be set up for better progress in this round !
Thanks for the reply JD! My legs (chicken legs at best) are overall weak but hammies are the worst I think. Yes I deadlift and squat just at or barely below parallel. Takes my hams several days to recover from squats and 2 days to recover from deads haha!
I am fairly happy with my bench and deadlift, but my squat is way behind!!
