THE REVERSE HYPER EXTENSION
One of my all time favourite exercises, the reverse hyper was invented by powerlifting guru Loui Simmons from @westsidebarbellofficial in attempts to strengthen his lower back and vertebrae after incurring a life changing injury.
The reverse hyper builds posterior chain strength, targeting lower back tightness, hamstrings, glutes and hips all at the same time, which in turn has proven to increase both your squat and deadlift numbers too.
Recently I watched a video of @darustrong performing the reverse hyper with a slight head and chest lift at the top end of each repetition. This technique allows you to target your lower back erectors and you’re really able to establish a great connection, simulating the body weight back extension performed on the floor.
Here we performed 3 sets of 20-30 repetitions after a 90 minute lower body strength session.
