Many back strengthening, or extension, exercises have you lie on your stomach and lift your upper body (or your legs, or both) off the ground.
While these exercises can be effective for some people, it causes many, many others to sink into the low back, and bend in places that already bend too much, just to get their upper body off the ground.
Today’s exercise takes your back extension into a seated position where you can safely and much more effectively build length and strength for your back.
Once you’re able to get the work of the seated extension into your body, I’ll also show you how to add a little bicep and tricep action using fascial length tension.
This also just happens to be my favorite way to tone my arms!
