Re: glute ham sit up sub

Just like for the back extensions, there are lots of ways to creatively do GHR situps - lying over swiss ball with feet hooked under bench or bar (finally! a use for that Smith machine) is a common one. You can lie crosswise across a bench, with your feet hooked, as well.
That is from the fact sections, but I use the swiss ball with feet hooked under my coffee table, it works pretty good.

Lat pull down machine. Face out, calves under pads. Put ball out couple of feet from edge of pad. Bend over and rebound from ball as necessary. Modified hamstring curl but works
