Lever Back Extension

Instructions

Preparation

Sit in machine with back against padded lever. Push hips back against back of seat by pushing feet against platform. Arch back in "C" shape.

Execution

Extend spine until hyperextended. Return and repeat.

Comments

To avoid hip movement, push hips back into seat by pushing feet into platform throughout exercise. Position foot platform so small space remains between edge of seat and back of lower thigh. Use seat belt if it becomes difficult to stabilize hips. Also see exercises on old Nautilus Machine.
