The first thing you need to know about this machine is that it isn't really a glute/ham developer. It is a glute/ham/back developer.
The second thing you need to know about this machine is that it was designed by the inventor of the glute/ham/developer, Dr. Michael Yessis. To paraphrase an old action movie, he has forgotten more about physical conditioning that you and I will ever know. So, when the good doctor came to us with a design that is intended to be the most complete posterior chain developer on the market, we paid attention. And then we built it.
In creating the Yessis Glute/Ham/Back Machine, world-renowned biomechanist/kinesiologist and sport-specific training expert Dr. Michael Yessis applied several decades' worth of expertise and insight. Features that separate this device from all others include:
Incredibly adjustable chassis that will accommodate youth, 7ft. basketball players and everything in between
Lower standover height
Forward handles are angled downward to provide clearance for barbell work and to provide fatigued users with an easier dismount
Forward support feet are splayed outward for maximum stability and to provide clearance for hand weights
Welded rings on forward support feet provide attachment points for Active Cords to facilitate resistance training
Uniquely contoured thigh pad optimizes user positioning and the proper axis of hip/leg rotation
Greater range of motion allows more sport-specific exercises to stretch & strengthen the lower back and abdominal muscles
Lesser GHDs allow only 1 exercise, the Yessis machine provides the user with 12 different exercises, thoroughly working abs, low back, and hip areas.
Wheels allow for easy movement
Chrome plated adjustment surfaces
Separate guide rod located by a linear bearing eases footplate adjustment
Fully upholstered ankle/foot rollers
Durable wearguards on upper surfaces of forward support feet
Comes with instructional DVD and an exercise manual penned by Dr. Yessis himself
Provides total abdominal, low back and hip workouts
Designed by the inventor of the GHD.
Provided with an instructional DVD.
Peaked pad design for maximum back and hamstring stretch.
Angled handles for barbell/dumbbell clearance.
Low stand over height.
Fully welded frame for maximum rigidity, strength, and durability.
