Hamstring Strength

Posterior chain muscles (i.e. glutes and hamstrings) are still neglected by far too many exercise enthusiasts. One of my favorite lower body exercises to target these areas is the Stiff-Legged Deadlift. "SLDLs" as they are often referred to cause some pretty decent muscle soreness (consider yourself warned), but are extremely effective. The following pictures take you through 1 repetition. There is also a link for a fantastic video demonstration. Enjoy and let me know what you think:
