I'd say RDL's followed by glute-ham raises
Is there any substitute to glute ham raises if you don't have that thing at the gym?
i always thought SLDL's were the best
RDL > SLDL
I have no idea what a RDL is, but I like SLDL
Me too ,but i learned that they aren't in my kinesiology class.
romanian deadlift... similar to sldl, but not the same
i looked at videos of how to do both and i can't tell the difference, Is the only difference that you don't bend your back but you bend your hips?

I'd say 45 degree back raises and RDL
During an RDL, you strive to maintain a tight arch in your back throughout the movement, and keep the bar right along your legs throughout the ROM. You reverse the movement once you start to lose your arch (just below knee height).
My teacher was also saying that most peoples quads were so much stronger than their hamstring and having an imbalance can cause major injuries.
I can't wait to do these today. Would it be cool to do them after squats on leg day?
My friend was a sprinter and she said that she injured her hamstrings really bad because she always neglected them. Her quads were so powerfull that her Hamstrings couldn't keep up, and she injured them real bad or something like that.
the case for most people. I try to keep the exercises even
Of course this posterior chain bonanza could probably lead to an imbalance but with the quads being the weaker group
What do you do for quads vs hamstrings?
You'd also see a lot less shoulder problems if people did more pulling volume (this does NOT include pulldowns/pullups) compared to pressing exercises.
like bent over rows?
my typical day is pretty boring
Usually hit up about 4-5 sets of squats, 4-5 sets of leg extension, 4-5 sets of leg curls, 4-5 sets of sldl
