This exercise not only adds strength but also flexibility to the back and core muscles.
- Adjust the hyperextension bench so that your ankles are tucked under the footpads and your thighs are flat across the top pad.
- With your arms folded across your chest and your back straight, slowly bend at the waist towards the floor, keeping your back flat.
- Slowly return to the starting position.
- Do not arch your back at any time during this exercise.
