I got the now discontinued TDS for a fairly good price about a year ago. It has the split pad, which I am glad I got :-)

Its kind of a piece of carp (sic), but it has worked well.

My next GHD will be of a higher quality level (maybe Ford Taurus versus Pinto).

Do I regret starting cheap, not really. Would I prefer to have taken it up a notch into the mid-range price range, in hindsight, yes, but at the time, I had no idea what a functional fitness freak I was to become.

Aaron, York's GHD is of maximum quality, full commercial grade - not the cheapest on the market, but discounted from $700 to $490 + freight (but you're only one state over, so relatively cheap!). Take a peek at www.yorkbarbell.com. Has the twin rollers, adjustable knee pads and ankle stabilizers. Let me know if you'd like to see a spec sheet!

Allison, can I trade in my Pinto? Just kidding, I know that's going nowhere :-)

I will be sure to contact you when I need my 2nd GHD.

Re: $130 Glute Ham Developer?

I realize this is an old thread, but I thought I'd put it out there anyhow!

I work for a fitness equipment manufacturing company in San Antonio, TX called Weebz Equipment. We are releasing a new GHD this week.

One of the previous posters touched on quality v. price. Weebz Equipment was created out of our original business Weebz Welding, a specialty welding and fabrication shop.

Anyhow, checkout our site Iamaspammer.com

Re: $130 Glute Ham Developer?

I found the site. http://weebzequipment.com/index.php?p=133. The price isn't listed on the website so I'm waiting to hear back for a quote. Has anyone ever tried one of these units? Some feedback would be great.

Re: $130 Glute Ham Developer?

I wonder why these are called glute ham developers we we use them for situps and back extensions. The situps make my hip flexors worn out and the back extensions/hip extensions mostly make my back tired. Seems like the squat rack is the real GHD. And a GHD is more of a "core/hip flexor" developer. CHD? 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)
