Good mornings target lower back and glutes more than hamstrings.
Crunching the glutes pulls your hips through regardless of stiff legged or not.
some knee flex might hit the hammies more, depends on how you do them.
GMs used in conjuction with GHRs which target hamstrings more, hit both.
Squats get everything.
Stiff legged dead lifts can hit the hamstrings pretty hard as well.
but other than GHRs, you can work the hamstrings more or less depending on which muscles you are using as the prime movers. They have overlapping functions so you have to make it happen the way you want.[/quote]
I tryed natural GHRs but damn! there hard. Not just the muscle but actual joint gets little sore after doing them. I guess a variation of exercises is the key. Thanks for the information.
Romanian DLs, Stiff-Legged DLs are also good altenatives to GHRs. Pull-thrus are good too[/quote]
Thanks, I’l look up what pull-throughs are.
GMs hit my hamstrings hard if i do them with a wide stance. With a close stance i mostly feel it in my lower back.[/quote]
I never thought of doing them like that but it sounds like it would work. Cheers.
