You back probably does not like the flexion. You should do what pity says. He will explain it further I'm sure if you want.

The statics will help build up the lower back muscular endurance...which is what you want.

If you tweak your back doing extensions then you damn sure shouldn't be doing goodmornings until you learn to do them from the hips.

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

Oh right..

I thought they were called good mornings, not back extensions..

But no, they ARE back extensions I was doing..

Don't you get good static back work from planks?

Oh, I see.

Yes you get static back work from planks but it's not the same.

The issue, though, is not how to get static back work since there are many ways to do that...the issue is if you should be going into and out of lumbar flexion under load.

Now, I'm actually against that in general. But lot's of people swear it's needed. But if you have previous lumbar spine problems I can almost guarantee it's not a good idea.

So we are differentiating between "back" extension and "hip" extension. T

that link to that article on hip and back extensions is a 404 not found page now. damnit. and i can't find a video of an even close to good one. suck.


ok.


but...fulcrum moved further back so you can easily extend from the hips, and not extending the lower back. your back should look the same at the bottom as it does at the top. nice arch in the lower back. it also helps to keep your shoulder blades retracted, and squeeze the hell out of your ass to get the most benefit.

That link was for a front squat..

Is that what you meant to link?

Thought it was going to be for back extensions or something..

Yeah, that's what I've been doing, only your legs are up at a 45 deg. angle (meaning your whole body is, at the top of the movement) on the apparatus they have..

Like I say, may have to get someone to sit on my legs and do it on a bench..

The way in the vid is the way not to do it. That is disc herniation waiting to happen.
