    I'd quite fancy making one of these. Think it would be a good investment in time and effort. It's quite a versatile piece of kit too.

    Here's the fancy Elite Fitness one:



    I'm thinking of a wooden construction.

    Anybody built one?

    the youtube video looks pretty interesting. I think I can load a barbell in my squat rack, clamp it in place, wrap a towel around the bar and accomplish what this guy is doing. I'll give it a whirl!

    Looks good, although I'm very partial to SLDL's myself. There is an invention called a Reverse Hyper, that is supposed to stretch out the back whilst working the hams, promoting healing and spinal correction.
    I think Louie Simmons invented it. I plan to make one someday.

    Squat, bench, chin, deadlift, dip, row. The rest is secondary.

    I think I&#39;ve figured out a good way to build a simple GHR thingy (well, it&#39;s not a machine is it?). For best effect, you really need a plate to rest your feet against rather than have them hanging free.

    The reverse-hyper apparatus looks quite easy to build too but I think I can make a GHR that will take up less space when not in use.
