  • declineBench, hyper extension combo

    Is there a decline bench/hyper extension machine combination on the market? I am looking for something in which I can do decline crunches as well as hyper extensions and not have to take up room with both of them. I have not found much as yet in this area unless I am typing in the wrong words. I have limited space at home, where I lift, and my lower back needs continual strengthening.

      Get a GHR.. You can do Hypers on it, as well as sit-ups, but more importantly you can do GHR's and they are awesome.

        I have never seen a GHR in which you can do sit ups or hypers. I need one that doesn't take up alot of space. i.e. if it folds up that would be a major plus.

          Have you ever used a GHR? Because you can do both on just about any GHR...lol You can actually use it for quite a bit of different movements.

          The footprint however isn't the smallest. The one at my gym has wheels on the back, and if stood vertically to store it, I think isn't all that bad. I would say if you can at all fit it, get one, as it is a versatile piece of equipment, and great for the posterior chain. Probably will be one of the best things you ever buy for your home gym.

            I see what you mean. I have never exercised on GHR nor seen one in person. Funny because for a few months I worked out at a powerlifting gym yet they did not have any there. Closest thing was the hyper machine. If I can find one economical and retractable I will go for it. I am also tall so how much of an issue is that on one of these? I am 6'1".

            On the sit up part, it looks like you would do a reverse hyper extension on it rather than a decline.

              Height won't be a factor as they are adjustable for height. My training partner is 6'5.

              It isn't specifically a decline but it is great for ab work. I prefer it to a decline personally.

                I will see what I can find in a GHR that is economical and space conscious as well. I came across 2 that were adjustable on the foot spacing so that is a plus as well.

                  I was looking at the hyper extension machines on Amazon because they are economical BUT I realized that the bad doesn't seem like it would fit well to do the GHR. It also has one set of foot holders which means it would be awkward again in using it has a GHR. Would anyone agree?

                  So It looks like I probably need to find an economical GHR that is adjustable. That could be a challenge!

                    No, it isn't. Drive up and get one.

                      I don't want this one. I need one in which I can also do hyper extensions on as well. Hyper extensions, sit ups and GHR's all in one. Can't do hypers on that one.
