How to Do Back Extensions
- Adjust a back extension bench and get into position. Hold a weight plate against your chest or a barbell across your shoulders if you want to use additional weight.
- Lean forward as far as you can by hinging in your hips.
- Reverse the movement with control and return to the starting position.
This exercise can be performed with or without extra weight, such as a barbell or a weight plate.
