Best Hamstring Blaster
 
I need to move away from RDLs, as they tweak my knee. I have been trying to get the form right for a year and just can't seem to do them without getting odd discomfort in the knee.

Other then RDLs and leg curls, I want your favorite hamstring blaster for muscle and strength. I need to add one or two exercises into my rotation. Deadlifts and squats don't apply, since I do them already.

Should I add Good Mornings? Sumo RDLs? Other? What say you?

I wish I could help. My hamstrings are weak and my back makes it hard to do anything but curls with any weight at all. If you come up with something let me know.

... although I have heard folks rave about GHR. May be try that with weights, if just BW is too easy for you?

I'm sorry about my lack of knowledge, but what is GHR?

I tried body weight GHRs, and just can't find a decent way to do them on the equipment I have. Maybe I just need to get more creative.

GHR's all the way, killer and they burn oh so good.

Don't feel dumb. My upper body is so heavy I probably won't be able to do them at all.

I want this piece of equipment:
