Hyperextension Bench

I have always wanted a hyperextension bench to do sit up and back extension. Everywhere I've looked, have been very expensive. I saw one at this website http://store.titlemma.com/hyper-extension-bench.html for $80 with a $15 shipping. Do you thik this is a good deal

Re: Hyperextension Beach

Someone else correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you can do situps on this...at least I wouldn't.

Re: Hyperextension Beach

A GHD is different from this hyperextension bench / roman chair. The GHD has plates behind the ankle pads which your feet push against. I'd love to hear others' more knowledgeable comments, but I understand the hyperextension bench / roman chair is way inferior to the GHD machine. Yay, nay, other?

Actually, I have something similar in my garage (soon to be replaced by a proper GHD). It's worked quite well for the past 18 months. If you put something at the end (I use a stack of tires) to brace your feet, you can do pretty good GHD sit-ups. Otherwise, your feet will drop to the floor at the top of your sit-up.

I got mine for about $50 at Play-It-Again. I think its a good, cost-effective sub for a true GHD.

Obviously, you can't do GHR's on this, but back/hip extensions and GHD sit-ups (with above caveat) work fine.

I think I found the GHD at this website. http://www.backtrainer.com/Roman-Cha...ion-Yukon.html. Do you think the price is reasonable?Thank you for the insite.

Re: Hyperextension Beach

Is there a GHD that has the yukon price and the "man-tunnel?"

Re: Hyperextension Beach

I currently use the Title hyperextension. It does the job. I would love to have an actually GHD, but if you don't have the money, the Title equipment will work for you.

LMAO, thats one thing I would always like to be battle ready. But seriously, the yukon is very cheap. But the split pad versions are at least $150 more. There has to be a better deal out there somewhere. I hope
