Product Summary

Glute ham developers (GHD) are great machines to develop strong and explosive hamstrings, but they cost a lot and take up a good amount of space.

Freak Athlete provides a solution for home gym owners with its Nordic Mini, a compact and low-to -the-ground version of a GHD. Measuring just 18 inches by 24 inches, the Nordic Mini features padding, a full-sized footplate, a height-adjustable ankle locking mechanism, and built-in transport wheels for portability.

Although small, the Nordic Mini supports heights up to 6-feet, 10 inches and has a weight capacity of 350 pounds. This is one of Freak Athlete’s more popular items, so it sells out quickly. You will want to pre-order ahead of time.
