NEVER do Roman chair...just as an fyi. Very bad....herniated disc waiting to happen. It's how I got my bad back. Repeated flexion and extension of the lumbar spine under low magnitude load is a no-no. There is no good reason to do this movement. Also ends up pulling in the abdominal muscles and causing an imbalance there. That can fuck up the shoulders as well...it goes on. Don't do it.

For the extensions if you can't adjust the pads properly I wouldn't bother.

"Repetitive flexion-extension motions with low magnitude compressive forces have been shown to be an effective mechanism for causing disc herniations. - EC

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

That's just a hyper. Those are not usually called "roman chairs" in and of themselfves these days but I know they sometimes are. I was referring to sit-ups though not extensions. It would be doing a sit-up on that or any sit up where you elevate yourself and hyper-extend the bottom portion of the movement.

Here's an adjustable one, Pity:
