Has Anyone Made Their own GHR Machine?

I live in Mexico and the costs to ship one here are insane.

Thanks, A

not a machine, but I put a plate on either side of the bar, roll it against the wall, block it there with a couple of 10’s, then just lay down with my ankles under the bar and my knees on the floor and do my GHR’s that way.

 Might look at building an attachment for the power rack. Saw something like that on BB.com. What do you have to work with?

If you have a training partner you can do “natural” GHR (or, perhaps more correctly, Hamstring Raises) by having your partner hold your feet. Something soft under your knees makes this exercise just slightly more tolerable.

You will usually find something in your gym that you can compromise with.
