Hyperextension on the fitball – exercise technique:
- Lie down on the fitball in such a way that your body rests against it and is parallel to the floor, as shown in the picture. To maintain balance with the toes, rest on the floor. Pick up the disc and place it under the chin or under the neck. This will be your starting position.
- On exhalation slowly raise the trunk upward, bending at the waist.
- Hold in this position for a few seconds, straining the lower back. On inhalation slowly go down, returning to the starting position.
- Carry out the necessary number of repetitions.
Attention: first you should try this exercise without weighting.
Variations: you can also use a bench for hyperextension or a regular bench, using the help of a partner.
