I want to start incorporating GHR's since I don't do them at all. My question to you is what day do you think I should do them? The days I squat or the days I dead, or both?
you can do them on both...
We use them on both squat and dead lift days.
Both days. Make sure you're doing them correctly as well. I see a lot of people treat them as a back hyper extension and it ends up losing a lot of it's effectiveness for your posterior chain
Cool, thx for the input. Should I just aim for doing reps @ my bwt first? I know I am not going to be able to do many at first so I am thinking of trying to get 20 total to start and work from there no matter how many sets its takes.
Maybe do a few sets of 5-8 with bodyweight. Keep adding reps and eventually add bands or weight.
Make sure you get the form down correctly first and foremost.
If you do them 2x a week, I have no doubt you'll see some good carryover to your squat, and even more carryover to your pull.

Got on the GHR sunday (as my regular gym does not have one) for the first time in a while. It completely feels like a different part of my hamstrings are sore. Great accessory work!
Question too... Toes in, out, nuetral, or all the above?
