Guys, I need to get some feedback about buying a Glute Ham Developer. I ran across a REALLY good deal on craigslist! A guy is selling one made by York Barbell that is in excellent condition for only $300. http://www.muscledriverusa.com/York-...HD_p_1128.html I've heard only great things about the machine, but I'm wondering is it really essential? I'm trying to make room for it in my home gym now.
Why not do straight leg lifts, and save $300?
Does this pose make my camera look big?

$300 for that piece of equipment is a great deal. I would buy it if it were me. It's not "essential", but it is very, very nice to have.
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

Its a great deal.
My only concern, is some people don't like the roller pads. Have you had a chance to try one with roller pads?
