A glute ham raise can also be known as a glute hamstring developer. Our Edge model is heavy duty and suitable for all commercial facilities and sports clubs.
Whilst a glute ham raise is not a typical strength lift, it can often be overlooked but is in fact crucial in functional strength training and is extremely popular amongst powerlifters and crossfit athletes.
Designed to activate and strengthen the posterior chain, it works by providing support to your ankles whilst allowing your knees to rest on the half moon pad and your body to extend into a horizontal position. The real work happens when you use your posterior chain of muscles in order to pull your upper body into a vertical position.
The Edge GHR features a solid 5mm steel foot plate giving you a firm platform for your feet to push against while the extra wide base will give you stability.
A bolt together assembly with 9mm steel tapped bolt holes results in very robust construction which is easy to assemble, ship and manoeuvre into place at your gym.
It features resistance pegs on the front foot if you wish to add some dynamic movement. Alternatively, if you're new to using the machine you may find the assistance pegs on the rear back plate very helpful to ease you into this exercise.
Getting on and off a GHR machine can sometimes be a struggle so we have a large foot plate on either side to allow easy access while the ‘lip’ on our upholstery helps to give the lifter a small amount of knee support when setting up.
Our individual upholstery rollers allow independent movement allowing you to achieve the perfect set up while the entire foot plate assembly can slide forward or back accommodating a range of users.
