Glute Ham Raises

not sure if this is common but-

saw this on another thread: they can be done with your heels under a couch/bed! Genius. I’ve never found a glute ham raise in a gym so I kind of gave up on the exercise.

I have found a new goal to work towards: doing as many glute hams just like that guy did.

That video was cool!

They can also be done in a lat pulldown by facing away, putting your knees on the seat and hooking your heels under the roller.

Hmm Jilly - would your knees both fit in the width of the seat of a lat-pulldown.

Never did a glute-ham raise, because we don’t have the machine, but I am now inspired by that video to go try one.

Well, mine did the one time I tried it. It was way harder than I realized! I’m going to try these at home soon and hold on to an iron woody band for assistance until I can do them solo.
