The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Would this be a viable reverse hyper alternative?

    Using an elavated bench and the low cable attachment. Legs off the bench and using a strap or striaght bar attachment to raise the weight up?

    Gyms are crap near me the nearest GHR is a 30 minuted drive so we use the lat pulldown machine.

    I would just do good mornings and/or Romanian/sldls in your case. Maybe pull throughs are an option? Are you looking to do reverse hypers for the decompression benefits?

    Yeah just started pull throughs now and am going to start RDL. Its not an injury issue more a prehab/hamstring development thing.

    I doubt doing that cable thing would work since the reverse hyper allows a swinging motion as well as allows your vertebrae to open stretch relax whatever you want to call it in the bottom position, duplicating that motion with a cable would be difficult and most likely would reduce the range of motion without a purpose built machine.

    I like pull throughs using green ( average) bands. Let the bands pull your arms as far through your legs as possible before raising back up. It will give you the opening up effect for the vertebrae.

    I'm with Joey, I would do some GM's, RDL, pull throughs, and different styles of SLDL. If you don't have a reverse hyper, these can be some good options.
