Back Extension Machines

Back extension machines, also known as hyperextension benches, are designed specifically to target the muscles of the lower back, primarily the erector spinae muscles. They are often used to help strengthen and build the back muscles, improving overall core stability and posture. Users position themselves on the machine with their thighs braced against a support pad, their torso bent forward, and their back in line with the machine's pivot. By engaging the lower back muscles, they then lift their upper body until it's in line with the rest of their body. The machine's design enables users to isolate their lower back, minimizing the risk of injury and ensuring a targeted, effective workout.

Glute Ham Developers (GHDs)

Glute Ham Developers are versatile pieces of strength equipment designed to isolate and strengthen the glutes, hamstrings, lower back, and abdominals. The standard exercise, known as the glute-ham raise, involves positioning oneself face down on the machine, with the feet secured under a roller pad and the thighs resting against a large curved pad. The user then bends at the waist and lifts their torso upwards, engaging the glutes and hamstrings. GHDs can also be used for a range of other exercises such as back extensions and sit-ups, making them a highly flexible addition to any workout routine.

Roman Chairs

Roman chairs are strength equipment designed to work the lower back, abdominals, glutes, and hamstrings. They are similar to back extension machines but have a less rigid structure, which requires the user to engage more stabilizing muscles during exercises. The user positions themselves face down with the hips at the edge of the bench, the ankles secured under a padded bar, and the body straight. By bending at the waist and then lifting the torso back to a straight position, the user effectively works the target muscle groups. Roman chairs can be used for a variety of exercises, including side bends and twists, providing a comprehensive core workout.
