If there is a choice between the fast, exhilarating cardio workout that gets you amped up or the slow and steady weight training routine, most will always pick the cardio. While the back extension sure sounds like it would be working your back, its focus is actually on extending the lower back at the climax of each rep to help strengthen the spinal erectors.
A new way of getting a great exercise for your butt can be referred to as a “back extension.” The focus of this exercise is largely on purely the hip extension, making it arguably of one the best glutes exercises out there.
Here are some tips to get the most benefit out of this workout.
1. Turn your feet out 45-degrees
2. Round your upper back
3. Add weight
4. Slowly bend forward at the waist while keeping your back flat.
5. Slowly return your torso to the initial position as you inhale.
