This wiki has been updated 13 times since it was first published in October of 2018. A GHD — or glute-ham developer — is a specialized machine that’s used for targeting your backside, and whether you’re a CrossFit expert or a casual gym-goer, anyone can benefit from using one. Our selection of benches is dedicated to strengthening that specific portion of the body, with some that function for other areas as well, and we’ve included models suitable for commercial and home use. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

1. Rep Quality

2. Titan Developer

3. ValorPro CB-29

Editor's Notes

December 02, 2018:

Glute-ham developers are an excellent way to strengthen your posterior chain and increase general muscle and joint health, but they are a relatively specialized machine, so we ensured that this list offered both traditional options and multifunction models. Added the top four choices to serve professional athletes and gym owners, and included the Titan Pad and Yukon Hyperextension for those who want something more budget-friendly for the home.

4. CFF Hyper

5. Titan Pad

Born in Arizona, Gia is a writer and autodidact who fled the heat of the desert for California, where she enjoys drinking beer, overanalyzing the minutiae of life, and channeling Rick Steves. After arriving in Los Angeles a decade ago, she quickly nabbed a copywriting job at a major clothing company and derived years of editing and proofreading experience from her tenure there, all while sharpening her skills further with myriad freelance projects. In her spare time, she teaches herself French and Italian, has earned an ESL teaching certificate, traveled extensively throughout Europe and the United States, and unashamedly devours television shows and books. The result of these pursuits is expertise in fashion, travel, beauty, literature, textbooks, and pop culture, in addition to whatever obsession consumes her next.
