EP.37 | The Back Extension

Are you a CrossFitter, Powerlifter or Olympic Weightlifter? Maybe you have issues getting your back loosened up. The Back Extension is a fantastic tool that you can add to your arsenal to strengthen, maintain and reinforce proper mechanics for weightlifting. 

Imagine catching a clean or starting out your front squat with a rounded back.  Not pretty right?  Enter the back extension.  Properly utilizing this movement can help undo the countless hours of sitting/standing in a rounded back position. 

What's even better is that you can perform this movement EVERY DAY.  You can get your lower back loosened up prior to your lifting session or post lifting.  As you ramp up the volume you can start to add in more advanced options by adding weight behind your head.  By varying volume and weight you can build yourself a VERY strong back.
