With RDLs, if I really stick my butt back when I descend, and try to lean the weight away from my body by several inches more (as opposed to keeping it close to the shins), I really get some good hamstring work in. If I keep the weight closer to my shins, my back rounds more. And If I "drop' the weight instead of lowering by sticking my butt back, my back rounds more.

Btw, I like this post. Many lifters believe the RDL and SLDL are the same exercise.
