    Agree...

    I'm pretty sure that Jason could make you a Glute Ham Raise for much less than that...

    I might add a GHR machine at a later date when the funds become available. I want to add Leg Extension and Leg Curls to my Quad & Hamstring routines.

    Does it allow you to do full extensions to really squeeze the quads?

    Do you have a Barbell and weights? Beacuase if so there are at least 4 quad developing exercises that are better than the leg extension. The benefit in having a ghr as opposed to a leg curl is that you are working the hamstrings as extensors as opposed to flexors. This will increase you squat poundages guaranteed and thus your lower body development. The ghr also makes a good hyperextension and ab machine. Just trying to help bro

    Hold up...Does Lou (or anyone) still hold the patent on the GHR? I know he does on the Rev hyper.


    Just a thought...
