Overview

The glute ham raise is an exercise targeting the glutes and hamstrings on a GHD, or glute ham developer bench. The unassisted version of the movement requires serious hamstring strength, so it is more common to see versions that use a band or PVC pipe for assistance. It is commonly performed as an accessory movement for heavy barbell lifts. While a single rep may be a struggle at first, with time, strong athletes can build up to doing them for 8-12 reps per set.
