About your strength balance question. Let me tell you that the quadriceps are stronger than your hamstrings. Don't know the exact ratio, but it certainly isn't 1:1, more like 3:2 - quads : hamstrings. On a side note, the quadriceps consists of 4 muscles, the hamstrings of 3. So it also makes sense from an anatomical viewpoint (quads>hamstrings).
