You push harder and you start to hear a the whisper of YOU CAN. You realize you are not the person you thought you were is no match for the person you are."

    Do them at the end of my back workout.....then finish with 2 sets of hamstring curls..
    I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!

    I do stiff legged DLs for the hamstrings. The lower back does get hit too (how can it not?), but my focus for that exercise is the hams.

    I would do it on leg day in a traditional split. However, it certainly works your erector spinae in addition to your hamstrings and glutes.
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...

    Personally I have a hard time doing stiff deads.. because my back rounds at the bottom. If I keep my back straight, my hams dont get good enough of a stretch.

    Try them on a platform or use dumbbells. You will definitely get the stretch you are looking for.

    I'd put it on whichever day has less volume.

    I am not a fan of SLDL...It puts little to no tension on my hams. I also have the same situation as camarosuper6 does.

    I've tried platforms and DB...SLDL just don't work w/ me
