Single leg mankinithe past i have tested leg presses, leg extensions, hack squats, smith machine squats, lying leg curls, seated leg curls, butt blasters, 4-way hip extensions, seated adduction, and seated abduction. movement of a single leg deadlift is not unlike that of a drinking bird. loading with weight has plenty of options too, single dumbell (contra or ipsi- lateral load) bar, sandbag (zercher is rough if held ‘high’), could also use a jumpstretch band by looping it around the neck and standing on it. for example, someone might not be able to perform a single natural glute-ham raise but may be able to perform ten glute-ham raises off the glute-ham developer.

exercise teaches you to hold the shoulder girdle rigid to avoid strength leaks in pressing lifts. doing a deadlift on one leg takes strength, balance and flexibility. perform the exercise in the same manner as the dumbbell back extension (except do it one leg at a time). athletes often perform slide board leg curls or shelcs (supine hip-extension leg curl) on a physioball.
bodybuilders stick to three different types of leg curls (lying, seated, and standing) along with straight-leg deadlifts, while the powerlifters hit the hamstrings hard with good mornings, glute ham raises, back extensions, and reverse hypers. sometimes i do these stiff-legged, others with a deeper bend in the knee. this is a hip extension movement with bent legs but the hamstrings have to work very hard to hold the knee flexion position isometrically and to extend the hips. it's very similar to the straight leg deadlift except the bar is placed on the shoulders rather than held in the hands.
