This month on Trainer Tip Tuesday we will be discussing considerations when you are back extensions from the ground on another flat surface, such as a massage table. Back extensions can be one of the most effective ways to strengthen your low back muscles and improve your spinal mobility, but there are some key things you need to watch out for to make sure you are doing them correctly.

It is often thought that, when doing back extensions from the ground, you have to start the exercise with your stomach flat to the ground. This can be uncomfortable and painful for many people.

Instead, there are some other options you can try that will help you adjust the starting position and perform the exercise more comfortably.

Check out all of the details in this week’s episode of Trainer Tip Tuesday, and be sure to tune back in next week as we discuss more considerations when doing back extensions.
