I sat hunched over for months while playing ps3.
For some reason now I can't do squats without lower back pain. It doesn't hurt when I do deadlifts.
I figured a reverse hyper and GHR was what I needed.
I couldn't afford westsides one because I live in Australia.
So I bought this one made by Force USA.
Is it any good? Will I get to stretch my sacrum with this?
Cheeers.

Yes it will work fine, I have used one at City Gym Syd.

Is there really only 32.5 kg between your bench and military press?

Good, I'm glad to hear that.
Yes there is. I'm a poor bench presser. Do you think that difference is bad or good?

Neither really, strong military press means shoulder strength will most likely not be an issue so that's cool.

If you live in Sydney you may be able to start powerlifting with me and my bro, I train in the city at Cook and Phillip all you need to do is put $5 a week into a kitty to help us buy chalk/bands/chains etc (plus join gym).

Good luck with it all, hope you hit your goals.

Damn that's a shame. I live in rural SA so I can't.
Would of been awesome to train with someone your strength that's for sure.
