Break at the hips and start to slack the knees slightly. As the hips go back, they should pull UP to the ceiling (to stretch the hamstrings). Only go as low as your natural curve/arch in your lower spine allows. Make sure to keep the weight in your feet EVEN back to front! I used to shift back to my heels excessively, which caused undue stress on my low back. On the ascent, focus on extending the hips to the barbell (think hump the bar ) make sure not to lose your upper body posture when you do this!
Sometimes little changes can make a big difference to an exercise. Instead of using a machine to do ham curls, I started using suspension trainer (aka T.R.X.) straps hooked to a adjustable cable machine. Straps and pulley roughly the same height as the bench your on - give or take a lil. Hook the handles around your ankles - try keep your feet soft and free (dont tense). It hits the hamstring surprisingly hard and doesn't allow for much room to cheat on the reps. You shouldnt be able to lock your legs out straight - so even in the starting position there is tension on the muscle and no real way to relax and rest between reps. Give it a blast!
