A new and improved model of the Yessis Glute Ham Back Machine is now available. It was developed by Dr. Michael Yessis and is similar to the original Glute Ham machine, also created by Dr. Yessis back in the 1980s. Since that time many companies have copied the original design, but they have been unable to duplicate how to use the machine most effectively. Nor have they explained how to do the main exercise, the glute-ham-gastroc raise most effectively. Thus, most of the machines presently on the market are very limited in scope and have little to offer in relation to exercise execution.
This new model of the Glute Ham Back machine is much more versatile than previous ones. It is now possible to do 12 unique exercises not only for the hamstrings and other hip joint muscles, but for total abdominal and lower back development. For example, the machine can accommodate athletes who are over 7 feet tall. This is the only machine on which these athletes can do the back raise, the best exercise to strengthen the lower back muscles through the full range of motion.
The machine is also usable by athletes 4 feet tall, 7 feet tall, and all other athletes in between. The glute-ham-gastroc raise exercise can be done more effectively on this machine because of the size and dimensions of the seat and the directions that accompany the machine. Everyone who purchases the machine will receive a training manual as well as a DVD showing execution of all the exercises at no extra cost. In essence, you're not only getting the best instruction from the person who created and developed all the exercises on the machine, but also a DVD so that you can see how each exercise is executed.
The machine is easily adjustable, not only in width but also for placement of the feet. It also allows for easy attachment of Active Cords to create more resistance for some of the exercises. The attachments and the machine can also be used to do many of the Active Cords exercises. These are in addition to the 12 unique exercises on the machine.
It should also be noted that the exercises for the abdominal muscles allow for a full range of motion through which the abdominals contract. This range of motion - or ability to do the exercises - is not available on other machines or in the common and most popular abdominal exercises.
The Glute-Ham-Back machine is very effective not only for strengthening the muscles in key actions seen in sports, but also in rehabilitation. In fact, according to Dr. Yessis, "I have never had an athlete suffer a hamstring pull if he or she was doing the glute-ham-gastroc raise." This is based on the premise that the athlete was doing the correct execution. Note that there are many individuals who "brag" about how many repetitions of this exercise they can do. However, when they try executing one according to the directions given by Dr. Yessis, they struggle to do one well. This new model can be used very effectively and safely not only in the athletic and fitness fields but also by medical and physical therapy personnel. In many cases it can be the deciding factor in saving or prolonging an individual's career.
