What is the proper place to line up on the GHD machine. I have found 2 positions I like. Hip angle directly over the fulcrum or a few inches past. There is a middle ground between these two positions that I feel like the spine is compressed into the fulcrum on the descent, Painful!

Hip crease for me is normally outside of the pad, with the area where the glutes and hamstrings meet on the pad.

That thread was perfect. Turns out positioning and hip flexor inflexibility is probably my issue. Didn't think about the latter. Every issue I come across in a movement whether it is in my own training or training clients it seems to boil down to flexibility being a factor.
