glute ham raises??? wtf is that?
ghrs, you're kidding me right?Originally Posted by Beelzebub
nope. never heard of em. my 3 ham movements are SLDL, lying leg curls, and seated hammer leg curls. glutes get worked on every pressing movement, hacks, parallel squats, and leg press. on hacks and leg press, my feet are placed on the tip top portion of the platform to place more emphasis on glutes/hammies.
wow, they are probably the best glute and ham excersize out there. they are a staple in any plers training, plus they're fun.
here's a link to 3 variaties, the first is the hardest. if they dont like the link to another site on here just delete it off after you get the link.
oh and the traditional ghr is the middle one, but you stop when your body is parallel to the floor, and the bar behind the back is optional.
i don't believe our gym has that little doo-hickey. our old gym did though.
thanks for the vid though. at least i know what that thing is for next time i see it, lol.
haha yea no problem, and that's none other than exmgq filming that, and the guy in the red shirt is going to the wpo finals at the arnold for the 220's, supposively him and travis mash are neck and neck on their lifts and good friends to boot.Originally Posted by Beelzebub
lol, ol' ex, eh? a friend and i are supposed to drive down to NC in april to watch him compete.
you should, he trains me and is one of the nicest guys i know, i'll be hanging out with him at the arnold in the wpo warmup section, i'm going to see all the wpo monsters in full force. i cant wait
Glen and I do GHRs on a seated calve machine with a bunch of plates loaded on so we don't break our faces going forward. The seated calve machine needs to have a wider base to get your knees on it-which not all do.Originally Posted by Beelzebub
Although it's not as difficult as using the realGHR machine (I'd say about 75-80% as tough), most people who have been training for some time will still have difficulty doing one rep with the full range of motion the first time on even the seated calve machine.
I'm not kidding though when I say no single exercise has helped my deadlift or squat more. It makes SL deads seem like a walk in the park. Once I get the money and the space I'm purchasing a GHR for my home/apt.
yeah what ivydude said .. give them a whirl if you can beelze they rock .. and by rock i mean they are painful as ****
btw i don't know how i didn't notice this thread earlier ...
that's easy, you were too short to see over the anabolics subforum. now, that bobo has moved it to the bottom, you can see this one now. make sense?Originally Posted by glenihan

straps are a bodybuilders best friend
Yeah, I use straps too but I am definitely no PL'er..And Beezlebub, I hate you for those two quotes..Rehab?If this is what you do for rehab, I seriously need to reinjure myself..Originally Posted by Beelzebub
i'd like to use straps but i'm hearing from all the big boys that they end up being a hindrance, so **** em. so far, it's going well. lol, the rehab is coming along nicely. once you see a little smiley beside the chest #'s, you'll know things are back to normal ETA: 2 weeks or less.
