How to adjust the GHD machine?
I bought this: http://www.newyorkbarbells.com/82626wp.html
And assembled it yesterday, and did a workout with quite a few hip extensions in it. I didn't wanna do GHDs from the start since I read of rhabdo so often, so I'll build slow on those, although I did a few and found them pretty easy (I used to do them on a home-made setup with a bench across my butt and feet anchored in my power rack, but this feels much better and I can go all the way down like in the videos, heh).
I was wondering, are there any guidelines as to the best distance between the pads and where your feet are??? Also guidelines about the height of the feet part? I've seen videos on the main page here and it seems the person usually adjusts it when transitioning from sit-up to hip extension (Like in "Michael" or something). I could be wrong though, maybe they were just adjusting the distance between the up and down pad so their feet were more "tight" in there. That doesn't worry me as this model wont let you change that distance, heh, so it doesn't really bother me.
THanks in advance for any help!
