1/19/12 Strength Training: Back Extensions-Two Versions

Friday, January 20, 2012

The first exercise in my interval cardio training session where I am working out six (6) strength exercises & belly dancing 'moves/techniques', give or take a few untermed dance moves, as the cardio training, on Thursday evening. The six strength exercises are: back extensions, narrow & wide-leg squats, bridge-ups, knee flexs, full plank @2 minutes(2) & modified Plank @2 minutes (2).

This is my way of executing the back extension. the 1st set is demonstrated with my arms resting on floor beside me . This way eliminates a bit of the pressure I feel with my hands & arms up beside my ear or behind my head.

In the 2nd set, I believe I am executing the extension correctly, or as near correct as I can get the back extension as demonstrated by SparkPeople.

    .... great form!... sometimes when I do these my back cramps up ... I think my extensions are too deep so I have modified them. When I get stronger I hope not to get a cramp. Great for back and fat in the back area too!

    Thanks for sharing! emoticon
