Back extentions
on the back extensions...where is the pad placed? i would recommend doing hip extensions, which moves the pad under your thighs...and also doing static extensions where you just hold yourself in place.

and squeeze that ass the entire time you do statics

Pad is on the upper quad, right below waist.

Static extensions?

your upper body is not supported, you just hold yourself in a straight out position. you can even hold weights on your chest to increase difficulty. is the pad movable? if so try moving it back a little further so you can easily extend from the hips, and keep your lower back set.

The apparatus is the one where you are at a 45 degree angle, and the pad can be adjusted as to where it goes, height-wise..

I would prefer the kind where you are horizontal, but oh well..

Maybe I can get someone to just sit on my legs and I can do them on a bench rack or something..

But again, I would rather be doing dead lifts, but just wasn't up for it last night..

You could do Good mornings? I don't know if they are good beginner movement though.

Good mornings..

THAT's what I meant..

Good mornings, only your legs are at a 45 deg angle, and you are bending down nearly straight up and down..

I've done these off and on for a while, so it's not like I just started them..

Back sure hurts today.. :(

( I hurt my lower back at work a while back, and working the lower back always tweaks it)
