Russian Glute Ham Machine

Posted on Tuesday, November 11th, 2014 by John Wood
Glute Ham Machines can be found in most gyms these days but this wasn’t always the case. This movement was pioneered by the great soviet weightlifters who placed a gymnastic pommel horse near a set of Swedish Bars into which they they hooked their feet. That’s the great Alexeev shown here demonstrating the movement. This exercise didn’t make it to US shores until well into the 1980’s.
