The Rogue Donkey is an entirely new beast; an all-in-one hybrid of our Z Hyper reverse-hyper machine and Abram GHD 2.0 glute-ham developer. Available as its own stand-alone unit or as a conversion kit for an existing Rogue Z Hyper, the Donkey enables athletes to perform reverse hyperextensions, rows, back and hip extensions, GHD sit-ups, and glute-ham raises on the same piece of equipment, with quick and easy adjustments for height and user comfort. This makes it a space-efficient and cost-efficient new machine for everything from core strength development and midline stabilization to lower back rehab and spinal decompression.
Built in the USA with 3x3” 11-gauge steel base tubing, the bolt-together Rogue Donkey’s first innovation can be seen in its diamond-tread GHD footplate, which features built-in side handles for doing reverse hypers. Using the convenient swing-arm adjustment system, athletes can easily shift the position of the footplate/handles forward or backward at any of 10 different settings (simply by pulling a pop pin), with 3 additional options for vertical height adjustments. Customizations can also be made in weight load, as the hyper posts each feature a loadable length of 10.5".
There are 3x3 steps on both the front and back side on the Donkey, making it easy to get up onto the pads for any type of movement. The pads themselves are 3.5" thick and measure 34" across in total, with an extended lip in front (to protect users’ hips from making contact with any hard surfaces) and a curved design in back more like our GHD 2.0 pads. There is also a removable middle insert pad, giving male athletes greater comfort and freedom of movement when doing back extensions with their feet against the tread plate.
The entire unit is finished in our Signature texture black powder coat, with rubber feet included standard to protect your gym floor and keep the unit stable. A pair of axle collars and a Spud Inc Reverse Hyper Strap are also included.

By combining the main components of the Rogue Abram GHD 2.0 and Rogue Z Hyper, we’ve built a new all-in-one machine with all the training benefits of both in a space-efficient, cost-efficient design. This includes a combination GHD footplate + hyper handles, dynamic contoured padding, and step-ups on both sides of the unit. Customers who already own a Z Hyper also have the option of converting their machine into a Rogue Donkey by purchasing our conversion kit.
The Donkey carries over the same swing-arm technology found in our Abram GHD 2.0, enabling the user to quickly shift the roller assembly / hyper handles to his or her desired setting, with 10 lock-in positions to choose from, as well as 3 height settings. Adjustments can be made simply by pulling and placing the included pop pin, making the machine quickly customizable to any athlete, even in a busy training space.
This 500 LB behemoth is manufactured in the USA and built on a rock solid foundation of 3x3” 11-gauge steel in a Signature Texture Black powdercoat finish with laser-cut Rogue branding. It’s a hybrid that sacrifices none of the qualities of its parent machines, with a diamond-tread steel footplate, durable 5” diameter rollers, 3.5” thick primary padding, and 10.5” of loadable length on each hyper weight post.
A number of unique new features make the Donkey safer and easier to use, including 3x3 steps on both ends of the unit (for easier access to the pads) and rubber feet to protect your flooring and keep the unit stable. The Donkey’s 3.5” thick pads measures 34" across in total, with an extended lip in front (to protect users’ hips from making contact with any hard surfaces) and a curved design in back more suited to effective GHD movements. There is also a removable middle insert pad, giving male athletes greater comfort and freedom of movement when doing back extensions with their feet against the tread plate.
The Hyper portion of the Donkey has been approved by Louie Simmons himself as an effective tool for physical therapy, back rehab exercises, and for general strengthening of the hamstrings, glutes, and hips. A pair of axle collars and a Spud Inc Reverse Hyper Strap are included standard, offering quick set-ups for reverse hypers as well as pull-throughs, rows, and knee and triceps extensions. The addition of GHD exercises like GHD sit-ups, glute-ham raises, and hip and back extensions help actively train the spinal erectors, and make the Donkey a uniquely versatile and regimen-altering machine.
