    Give em a shot man.. Just focus on pressing with your heels, and getting into that deep stretch.

    You could also do good mornings..

    well the 3 exercises for my DC rotation are squats, leg press, and NARROW hack squats. No matter the leg exercise, on leg day, I added in what i call a leg "alternate" exercise that is either leg extensions or lying ham curls. Which ever one i do, ill do them immediately after the workset for squats, hacks, or presses, and i'll do 2 sets of 20. After that is the stretches.

    All I can say is since ive started DC in Jan,...my hams have blown up, and there's a lot more thickness to the back of my legs. The Deadlifts help too,...:dl:

    So are you saying you don't do a dedicated ham movement, other then your "alternate" curls?

    Soco, make sure the bar is low on your back. When you bend over you drive your ass out, the bar should not travel forward too much, and should stay over your hips. Try to keep a wider stance as well.

    yup. I get all the activation i need from the curls... deep hacks with high foot placement and deads. Also realize I'm a tall guy... and especially for deads... my hams really get toasted as I do more of hybrid straight leg deadlift and regular dead, whereas I only have a slight bend @ the knee.

    Lunges/hack machine lunges used be my finishers on leg day months ago,.. but since DC I have seen good results with the above exercises.
