Do not allow thirst for profit, ambition for renown and admiration to interfere with my profession, for these are the enemies of truth and of love for mankind, and they can lead astray in the great task of attending to the welfare of Thy creatures.

Maimonides, "Prayer for the Physician"

Combo Hip-Back Ext

Extension work on the GHD can be both similar and dissimilar in action to CrossFit’s nine foundational movements. The GHD hip extension is similar because the spine is held in neutral throughout each rep.

While the spine is always held rigid when lifting, training flexion and extension on the GHD builds strength, positional awareness and coordination that can be applied to other movements.
