Back Extensions on Roman Chair
Follow machine instructions for set up. Place feet on foot stand and thighs on the pad so that your body is free to hinge at the hips. Cross arms at your chest, keep back as straight as possible, with your head and neck in the with the spine, and engage your abs.
INHALE: Bend forward from the hips, lowering chest towards the floor, while keeping back straight.
EXHALE: Straighten your body to return to the start position to complete one rep.
Keep your lower back flat--make sure it does not arch. Keep your head and neck relaxed into the support. Focus on using the abs, not just the upper body, to lift.
Muscles Worked: Lower back, glutes
