    What is The Best Way to Hit Hamstrings?

    My quads, gluts and calfs are growing significantly faster than my hamstrings. What is the best way to hit hamstrings besides doing leg curls?

    straight leg dead-lift, leg curls which you're already doing, and what's called the "adam archibalds" (is that his last name ? the football player who was seen doing reverse leg curls). check out this pic :

    There isn't a machine or bench at my gym where I can do that movement. I'm already doing leg curls and straight leg dead lifts but my hamstrings seem to be growing slower. Plus, genetically, I have large gluts and it makes my hamstrings look smaller.

    I know there's not a machine at your gym where you can do that. Have someone hold your feet down while you try and pull yourself up. To get assistance, do a small pushup on your way up and try to go down real slow.

    Lie flat on a bench, put a 45lb dumbell between your feet and curl it as many times as you can.
