just started SLDLs, not sure about something...

I can touch my toes with locked legs quite easily, as I've stretched them an awful lot over a couple of years, helping to recover from a hamstring strain from football.
I did my SLDLs with locked legs, and could easily lift the bar in that fashion (although still felt a good strain down the back of my legs)..is this form ok/safe ?

    No, my back does curve over a lot.
    So I should keep the LOWER legs stiff, and bend at the knees...that sounds more tricky from a balance point of view.

    you should keep perfect posture, i.e. your spinal curves shouldnt change
