It's hard to argue against RDLs when it comes to hamstring and overall posterior chain strength and development.

The biggest drawback of RDLs is that they can be tough on the lower back. If that's the case, try doing them with a trap bar, or if that's not possible, from a dead stop in the power rack.

You can also try doing them for higher reps at the end of your workout so you don't need as much weight, which even with lighter loads serves as one hell of a brutal finishing exercise, especially when using the constant tension method.
