But maybe that's because mine is a reverse hyper/roman chair and not a true GHD?
Maybe you should try some glute-ham raises on your glute-ham developer to develop your glutes and hamstrings. Just sayin...
(But yes, a Roman chair and a GHD are VERY different as a roman chair will not allow for said glute-ham raises very easily)
