done this in the past also, just light weight high reps for warm up. Didn't find it to be any more beneficial than lighter weight squats instead for warm up.

Just to warm up, I find it helps me engage my hams during squats. I do warm ups, working sets of squats, working sets of curls.

I guess it depends if you're trying more to build up your hamms as opposed to your squat.

I always blast my hamms after squats. Don't want to tire anything out that could hinder my squatting . . .

Just make sure your posterior chain does equal amounts of volume as your anterior for knee health.

Nope, don't see any problem with it thought, hamstrings is only stabilizers in squats.
Heck, 2 months ago i got a minor rupture in my left hamstring and during my whole rehabilitation i went on squatting as usual without any pain.

Well, with the amount of steroids Kai has in his system how he trains doesn't make much difference.
To train like a professional bodybuilder as a natural is just plain stupid.
They're like a V8 engine while a natural is like a moped engine.
