The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís 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?

    My Gym does not have a leg curl machine.

    What can I do to replace it?

    I guess that's a no.. plus I doubt that if a gym didn't have a simple leg curl machine that they would have a ghr... wish mine had one

    Use a lat pulldown station. It's the next best thing to a real GHR bench. GHR's rule.

    I've started doing GHR's on the lat pulldown station like Max Mex mentioned. My gym has a padded piece of wood which I set across the seat so there's enough width to put my knees. GHRs rule

    EDIT: I think you can also do GHRs on the back extension machine.... assuming it's one where you start out flat and not on an incline.
