Back Extensions | Nichole Mellison
Perform back extensions as a “core” core exercise. They are very valuable to balance out the strength of the large abdominal muscles. Generally, back extensions should not be performed using heavyweight. By utilizing instability from the Exercise Star, you can increase the difficulty and intensity of the exercise safely. Most exercisers should avoid potential strain from using additional weight.
On the Exercise Star, you’ll have to maintain a firm stomach and good core control. Move deliberately, and remember to do great repetitions, not the most repetitions. Feel the exercise work muscles up and down your back, especially in your lower back. The exercise is great for invigorating tired, sore muscles from sitting at a desk too long. Everyone needs a strong back and core!
