1. Sit on a hyperextension bench, locking your feet in position.
2. Lean back, being sure to allow your knees to flex slightly to maintain proper back flexion.
3. Swing your body back up to the upright position and reach forward with alternating arms, being sure to slide your legs back to a fully straight position at full extension so that your hamstrings are properly engaged.
