I tried doing RDLs from the hang today, and easily pulled 50+ lbs more than my usual working RDL from floor sets (for triples). I have a feeling they will really help in developing low back strength. Great exercise!

Wait, are you feeling the exercise in your lower back more than hamstrings?
And if you don't think kettleball squat cleans are difficult, I say, step up to the med-ball

Oh, I tried to keep the bar touching my knees/shins as much as possible and was definitely feeling the hams stretch as described in the video. My main problem has always been initial drive off the floor for conventional pulls, so this will be a great assistance exercise.
