The Hardest Hamstring exercise without weights would have to be the nordic curl, also known as the harop curl or glute ham raise eccentric.

This is an exercise which should definitely be included in your hamstrings workout. The hamstrings are contracting eccentrically and are forced to work in both hip extension and knee flexion roles. The great part about this movement is when the hamstring stretches, you are also getting stronger at long muscle lengths. This combination of strengthening and stretching has been shown to prevent hamstring injury.

In this video FitnessFAQs takes you through three progressions and variations for this amazing exercise.
