Absolutely solid, easy to assemble, great design and functionality. Love the plate storage. Unbeatable for the price. Highly recommended, as with everything from BoS.
Hey Alyssa, We are really happy that you are enjoying the Brute rack. Thank you for the perfect review. Hope to see you again soon.
just recently received a GHD machine from Bells of Steel. After a minor mishap with the shipping (shipper lost my GHD) Bells of Steel was very quick and efficient in remedying the issue. Out of the box this thing is built like a tank. Very impressed over all with the GHD and might have to start saving for a reverse hyper.
Hey Ryan, thanks for the review! It is our responsibility to get our products to the customers as quickly as we can! Our GHD really is a tank and is one of the most solid designs on the market! Enjoy!
I'm very impressed with the quality of this machine. This is sturdy without any weight on the peg (for me at ~185lbs). My reason for rating this 4 stars is because of the design of the foot plate. The foot plate can only be mounted one way, and it leads to a bunch of useless area above the ankles (when doing back or glute/ham raises), and my toes extending past the bottom of the foot plate. I can still perform the exercises, so it's not a huge issue, but if the bolt holes were more central, it would allow for better foot contact.
Hey Steve! Thank you for the review and for leaving us with some feedback. I will pass this onto my boss and we can potentially get this minor flaw sorted out for the next model to come. Happy lifting!
Glute Ham Raise Machine 3.0 - Awesome
Before I purchased this I was doing poor man's GHR where your feet are anchored, knees padded, and a band it utilized to add the weight assist. I was on the fence - would the machine be that different from the modified move? I'm spending a lot of time training so decided to make the investment. My conclusion is - modified exercises are good but if you are spending the time training, nothing can replace the right equipment used the right way. I'm very satisfied with the return and results to date. The unit itself is solid and I found assembly straight forward. I like the band pins as well. Great for adding difficulty or to use for modified banded reverse hypers (Machine will be added too once I have footprint). Highly recommend!
Hey Ryan, thanks for the review! It is tough to simulate the exercises without the actual machine. It is possible but the exercises feel much better in the actual GHR. Thanks again, and happy lifting!
This thing is a tank, much more solid and sturdy than I had expected. Easy enough to move around with the wheels at the back, looking at the wheels at first, I thought they might be a weak point and break but all good for about a year now. Only small issues (and I do mean small) were, it didn't come with assembly instructions, I emailed and quickly sent me a bit of a manufacturer sheet, somewhat helpful, in the end it was pretty straight forward to put together without instructions. One of the tiny screws that holds trim at the front of the pads popped stripped and popped out within a month but the trim is still there in nearly perfect shape. Some slight rust started showing on the bottom after about six months, nothing big and it can happen as I live in a very humid location. All in all I don't regret the purchase at all, reasonably high quality product at a great price.
Hey Paul, thanks for the review! The GHR is a tank and was designed that way to ensure our customers felt they had a solid product on their hands as well as it was easy enough to move around as well!

The glute ham raise is one of the best posterior chain exercises you can do and the 4.0 is the best unit you can use to do them.
The glute ham raise (AKA the Glute Ham Developer) is an essential tool for the development of speed and power for both dynamic field athletes and strength athletes by strengthening the posterior chain.
The posterior chain plays a vital role in a person’s ability to squat or deadlift heavy, or the ability of any field athlete to run, jump, stop and start. The GHR can also be used as an Ab machine to complete glute ham sit ups commonly seen in CrossFit competitions.
The greatest benefits of the glute ham developer are:
GHRs are superior to traditional leg curls because they work more muscles and put greater emphasis on the eccentric component of knee flexion.
Coaches have long used the GHR to improve sprinting speed and jumping capability. They’ve also proven to translate well to other lower body power lifts. Many of the world’s best powerlifters regularly include the glute ham developer as a staple in their programming due to its strong carryover to the squat and deadlift.
Little lower back stress
Since there are minimal shearing forces involved. This makes it a viable way for people with back issues – who may not be able to do exercises like deadlifts and Romanian deadlifts – to train the posterior chain in a safe manner.
The Bells of Steel Glute Ham Raise 4.0 has a superior design for these reasons:
It has longer legs and bolt down option for maximum stability
Wheels for easy transport
2 band pegs for adding banded resistance
Dual tightening adjustment knobs
The split pads are an essential design for men to prevent any squishing of your goods. Made of high-density foam and quality vinyl
Black powder coating
Weigh’s in at a beefy 163lbs
Diamond tread foot plate
Easily adjustable with bearing design
