1. Kickstand Deadlift

The fulcrum deadlift resembles a single-leg deadlift in that it targets a single leg, but you'll enjoy greater stability with both feet on the ground.

This challenging exercise requires no weight, but your hamstrings will be engaged throughout as you struggle.

2. Hamstring Curl with Sliders

3. Romanian Deadlift

The Romanian deadlift is a two-for-one deal. First, stretch your hamstrings as you lower the weights to the ground.

While the hip thrust primarily targets the glutes, it also engages the hamstrings.
