Hip 

Hip Presses

The word hip is defined as, “the structure of the vertebrate skeleton supporting the lower limbs in humans and the hind limbs or corresponding parts in other vertebrates.” The hips are the primary link between the trunk and the lower limbs.

For over 100 years the word has taken on alternative meanings and has become a part of what is deemed (slang) vocabulary and often used other than it’s original definition. We now accept and utilize words such as hipster, hippy, hip-hop and think of the word ‘hip’ as trendy, cool or a person up on the latest fashionable things.

The Pendulum Hip Press is the only leg press that has been built that isolates the hips and glutes when training an area which is very difficult to target. So, whether you are trying to Get the coolest, trendiest or a fashionable exercise machine or trying to Get the hips Strong – you can’t go wrong with the Pendulum ‘Hip’ Press regardless of how you define ‘Hip’.
