Get RX'd GHD Came Today
 
Ten days after ordering, my Get RX'd GHD came today. I don't foresee any issues with it. It is plenty solid and very adjustable.

Assembly took about a casual hour with a few minutes to go get the Chihuahua who decided to go walkabout. A pair of 17 and 14mm wrenches needed. I did not bother with the air tools but assembly woulda been faster with the air ratchet. Even without instructions, assembly would be easy.

I looked at a bunch of GHDs and naturally, Rogue was way up on my list but the Get RX'd was less $$ and had a couple more features

For those interested, it is made in China. Considering the Chinese produce barbells and bumpers I'd sell a kidney for, I'm not too concerned about the hecho in China tag.

I did not really give it a major workout today. I did learn I really need the thing since my glute ham raises need major work.

When the money tree blooms again, a reverse hyper will join the GHD

If anyone wants any specific photos of the thing, let me know.

Hey Marshall!

:thanx: very much for the review. We designed/built the GHD based on feedback from our customers and this board. It is one of our most popular items because of its easy adjustability, easy step in and out, and sturdiness.
If interested, check out the thread here: http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=79005 (WFS)

I also saw you guys got some slam balls! How are those doing? We recently added sizes up to 150LBs (just in case you need to go heavier) ; )

Keep us posted on what you think of the equipment and thanks for your business!

Slam balls are good to go. Mostly I use em for russian twists and stuff like that. In my CF career, slam balls have never been something I used. I do enjoy the occasional slam sesh but my conditioning these days is loading plates on a bar and chasing the occasional bad guy.

I aboslutely fell in love with the 150# balls at the Games a couple years ago and wanted to buy one but even the used ones were $$$. I made one that weighed about 100# but it exploded. I would love to have a big bugger like that someday

Re: your med balls, how do they compare to Dynamax? My wife texted me a while ago and said she wanted to get a couple med balls this weekend as we are slowly outfitting out garage gym and like to pick up the smaller items occasionally when the paychecks are fat.

Every time I see you post on the boards I think to ask you because some of the things you say are really Aussie!
