I'm still wondering how doc is doing his using the equipment he describes, I get the impression the range of motion is something like this:

It's easier at the top, that's why he uses the bands.

I like this version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klZnAoNX ... re=related" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
You can do it on the floor but this is harder.

This is the normal way to start off as it's the easiest and requires no equipment to speak of.

Edit: Ken's post is even simpler.

I've been wondering about that, actually. Quite a few people (e.g. Brett Contreras) don't get to 90 degrees at the top in their videos.

No places near me have the machine either, since I am in the back of beyond. Makes me wonder if there's something particular I should look for if I ever get around to buying one... or maybe its just technique.
Do them on the floor for a while before you consider buying a GHR bench. Then if you decide that it's an important part of your exercise life, great. It's a pretty significant investment for most home gyms.
