    My gym doesn't have a GHR machine and I've been using the standing glute machine to replace it but I've been curious as to whether it was a sufficient substitute. What do you guys think?

    JIC you have nfi what a standing glute machine is check the bottom left image on P3 of this http://www.nkoafootball.org/weight_training.pdf

    Or should I just start doing them this way....

    hamstring curls woudl be far better than 'ham glutes flexion standing' machine

    I personally have never worked on my manual ghr.

    I would suggest, leg curls, pull throughs, rdl's etc

    I've just switched to the dual factor HT training....

    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/core_feb_6.htm

    Specifically looking at

    ....so would you recommend that I just use leg press and set my feet high and narrow to work the glutes and outer quad (since I'm doing slightly wider than shoulder width stance squats)?

    I'd rather avoid leg extensions and hacks because I've heard bad stories about both but I also like to add some variety in my training week to week.

    Perhaps some RDLs would fit in there? I did enjoy going heavy(~300 is heavy for me) doing RDLs before I begun this program and I think they'd compliment friday's DLs well.

    Thanks for the comments ;)
