    stiff leg deadlifts vs leg curls


    Well since I'm going to the gym now, I was wondering if I could do leg curls instead of stiff leg deadlifts which I hate and still build up strong hamstrings. Would this be a good idea?

    Both are real effective! I say alternate.. Or combine.

    ^^Agreed.
    SLDL work the hams from the hip joint, while leg curls work from the knee joint. Ideally you should incorporate both. However since you hate the SLDL Id suggest focusing on them. Gaining mass is about kicking the **** out of your muscles, so taking the 'easy' road so to speak, is redundant.

    Plus, the extra glute and hip work will work your flexibility and provide much more overload than leg curls.

    i chuckled a little samurai

    i do both stiff legged deads and leg curls. i do my SLDL's with dumbbells though because its more comfortable for me and I feel a better stretch.
