    One thing I've noticed, and this may be because I don't squat 600-800 for reps like the pros, but I've always found that working hamstrings before squats or leg press either do NOT affect my strength negatively, or they INCREASE my strength on either movements.

    The other thing is that the hamstring raise referred to in the article is a glute-ham raise (GHR).

    Otherwise, really great advice on bringing up hams. Unless you're doing compound movements like GHRs, good mornings, or deadlift variations, hamstring movements should be executed in a slow, controlled manner both on the eccentric as well as the concentric. This is how even Ed Coan, the most famous powerlifter in history, did his ham work, and he definitely had a pair of hams to be able to hoist the weight he did on the squat and deadlift.
