    if you are a noob, definately stay with rdl's for a while. They are what helped me in the beginning. You want to make sure to arch hard in the beginning though, like you are starting a squat, this will pre stretch the hamstrings, then one you have pushed your hips back as far as they will go, start to decend with the bar right along your thigh. I use this variation with a slow controlled eccentric and an explosive concentric, but you should keep it at a 3/0/2 tempo.

    If you are setting up properly, you won't be able to decend past your knees. Make sure as you decend to keep pushing your hips back.
