Reverse Hypers

Anybody know how to tweak a GHD (Rogue) to do reverse hypers. No more room in garage for Rogue or Simmons.

Re: Reverse Hypers

Easy.

I used to do them on a GHD by grabbing onto the foot plate with my hands and resting my abs on the 'butt pad'. Then, just lift your legs and hold/pull with your hands and arms.

Re: Reverse Hypers

I like something that connects the feet (rope, cord etc) with a weight in the middle. Works the best for me

Re: Reverse Hypers

No room? have you looked at the cheaper options for 70$ or so?

check out GHD's and reverse hyper reviews here...

http://www.crossfitequipmentreviews....reverse-hyper/

you can always ghetto rig it.. but you simply will not get the same benefits.. it's like using a branch instead of a barbell.. yea similar... but definitely different.
