Wow just wow. I remember reading a piece Greg wrote about glute ham raises but this blew me away. I have never done a GHR that comes anywhere close to this.

Of course my GHR is nowhere near that caliber, in fact mine is about as low budget you can get for one that is purchased. I am going to try some of those moves this weekend at Greg's seminar.

GHRs are brutal. Definitely ease into them like you would a GHD sit-up. Known to produce some seriously crippling hamstring soreness.

Anyone else feel that doing GHR's on a apparatus are much easier than doing them on the ground with a person holding your feet?

Of course. The machine provides a HUGE leverage advantage even moving the axis of rotation up a few inches from the knees.

I find that a lot of people have a hard time telling the difference when doing them on the ground from:

Bodyweight Hamstring/Leg Curl (http://xercisefactor.com/view_video.php?viewkey=65d403869739ae7f0995)

vs

Glute Ham Raise on floor (http://xercisefactor.com/view_video.php?viewkey=ec9232f3a2f028ad5c89)

They do not get the pivot point difference.

Hm, I guess I would be counted as one of those people. Interesting I haven't encountered the second link you posted ever as a glute ham raise. To me it looked like a 1/2 leg curl and 1/2 beck extension. Anyone else?

Cool website btw, like a youtube for exercises.

It looked to be the same one you posted over the Crossfit board right?

Yep, same one.

But it didn't have anything in it about the Wide stance HSPU or squats not locking out so people really didn't have much insight :D

Hah! We both know it's because it's an isolation movement, and not worth the time.....:eek:
