STRAIGHT-LEG DEAD LIFTS 

These emphasize the hamstrings and also work the glutes and lower back.

Implementation:
(A)
Grasp a barbell as you would for normal Dead lifts and come up to a standing position. 

(B) Now have your legs close to being locked and bend forward from the waist, with your back straight, until your upper body is parallel with the ground, the bar hanging at arm's length below you. Now lift your torso back up again, pull your shoulders back, and arch your lower back in for a complete lower back contraction. Without your quads assisting you as in regular Dead lifts, you will use allot less weight doing this exercise. If you cant get enough of a stretch use a block or stand on a bench while doing this exercise.
