45 Degree Hyperextension

  1. Adjust the height of the thigh pad with enough clearance to allow you to freely hinge at the hips.

  2. Hunch over at the upper back and slowly descend until you feel a good stretch in the hamstrings.

  3. Elevate back up to the starting position by focusing on the hamstrings performing all of the work.

  4. DO NOT try going so high that you arch your back.
