Stability Ball Reverse Back Extensions – Lower Back Exercise

AskTheTrainer.com Personal Trainer Michael Behnken, MS, NASM-CPT-PES, CSCS Stability ball reverse low back extensions are an exercise you should only do if you are advised by a qualified professional. The most important aspect is the contraction of your glutes as your raise your heels up. Your glutes are the prime mover for this exercise. Your lower back is just a stabilizer. If you only feel this in the low back you may have muscle imbalances. These will not rid you of lower back fat, but they will strengthen your lower back. Remember to reiterate for the 10000000th time. Resistance exercises DO NOT burn fat off of the muscle you are exercising. AskTheTrainer.com

Stability ball floor – lower back hyperextensions Exercise

AskTheTrainer.com Personal Trainer Mike Behnken, MS, CSCS Lower back isolation exercises are something you should use sparingly. Your lower back is best exercised as part of multi joint full body type exercises. Make sure you squeeze your glutes during this motion. If you try your best but cannot maintain completely straight legs, you have either tight hamstrings or weak glutes. You should begin a corrective stretching program. Low back exercises will not burn fat off your love handles or lower back. AskTheTrainer.com
