Anybody do them without using the specialized machine for them and without stacking an olympic barbell full of plates on the ground? If you do/have, let us (me) know your solution! The best I can come up with is a back hyperextension machine adjusted to its lowest level (but that still puts your hamstrings at 45 degrees instead of parallel to the ground). Glute Ham Raises... http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Hamstrings/BBGluteHamRaise.html (with a machine) http://www.weighttrainersunited.com/gluteham.html (again, with a machine) http://www.t-mag.com/nation_articles/260rm.jsp (no machine, but needs a partner and little use of glutes) http://www.kvusa.com/wl/floorghr.htm (no machine, but uses a barbell on the floor which could be a no-no in my stupid gym)

I use a bench with knee pads made to hold you down while doing lat pulldowns. I put my calves under the pads while facing towards the rest of the bench (and away from the cable) and do them.z
