Back Raise

Back Raise


STEP 1. Position yourself into a back-extension station by placing your feet under the leg brace/anchor so that it is hooked there.

STEP 2. With your upper thighs resting on the bad, lock your hands behind your head and bend forward at the hips until your upper body is just short of being 90 degrees to the floor.

STEP 3. Slowly raise your torso until it’s in line with your lower body, then lower it. Alternatively, you can hold onto a weight by bracing it with your arms across your chest and do the same motions.
