The GHD Back Extension

The GHD back extension is dissimilar in action to CrossFit’s nine foundational movements. The spine actively and deliberately flexes and extends. While you would not want to flex and extend the spine in such a way while lifting, it is important to develop the strength and positional awareness to move from these positions to a neutral position.

Success Stories

Nuno Costa

“Being gay is not something that is easy … . If I can be an inspiration, a motivation, to somebody who’s kind of struggling, then I’m happy to be that.”

Charles King

“Since going blind, I’ve been homeless, I’ve been addicted to drugs and alcohol, I’ve been a prostate cancer (survivor), and I’m a diabetic ... . I wanted to die ... (but then) I stopped focusing on the things I couldn’t do and realized there were things I could do.”

Haley Morrone

“Having a place where people can come and not just being judged on their physical capabilities but also giving a place to heal mentally and emotionally is what I wanted to foster, and I think CrossFit does that.”
