How to Reverse Hyperextension

Starting Position

2. Place your lower abdomen and hips on the padded lever.

Proper Form

1. Slowly lift the lever up while keeping your legs straight and your body in a straight line.

2. Squeeze your glutes and lower back muscles at the top of the motion.

3. Return to the starting position in a slow and controlled manner.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you lift the weight up.

2. Inhale as you lower the weight back to the starting position.


1. Make sure to keep your lower back and core engaged throughout the movement.

2. Do not round your lower back or arch your back during the exercise.

3. Do not lift the weight too quickly. Control the weight throughout the entire range of motion.
