Overview

The hyperextension (on bench) is an exercise that targets the lower back. It is performed by lying face down on a bench with your legs extended and your arms crossed over your chest. You then raise your upper body until your torso is parallel to the floor, hold for a second, and then lower back down. This exercise is a good way to strengthen the lower back muscles and improve your posture.
