    Slow, controlled lying leg curls are excellent in my opinion.

    Aside from those mentioned, lunges (various types) are another option. With good functional applications to boot.

    Are lying leg curls done on your front or back?

    Cheers guys, I'll look up some of these exercises, straight leg deadlifts works the lower back as well doesn't it?

    Am I right in thinking that the hamstrings are mainly fast twitch fibres? Therefore maybe lower reps may be a solution if this is the case
