Having a wide variety of training tools allows a coach and athlete to regionally target specific areas of the anatomy. Choosing the appropriate exercise that specifically develops the upper and the lower sections of biarticular muscles leads to overall greater muscular adaptation.
The Pendulum Reverse Glute/Ham was engineered to strengthen the hips, glutes and hamstrings. The machine also allows athletes with ankle sprains, casts, back loading issues and knees to continue to stay strong and get strong.
When each repetition is performed from a bent knee position to a straight leg (the movement is as if the athlete was about to stand) the hips become targeted on the Pendulum Reverse Glute/Ham.
Keeping the knees bent from the beginning of the movement to the finish of the exercise emphasizes the gluteal muscles.
