Sit on the machine and adjust the seat so that the back pad is at the level of your upper back and buckle the seat belt.
Push the back pad until your body is straight; return to the starting position.
The entire motion should be done in a smooth, controlled manner that lasts about 3 seconds, with the downward movement no faster than the upward.

you could lay on a coffee table or bed on your stomach and keep your upper half of your body hanging over the side and lift your upper body parallel with your lower half and then back down. Recommend someone hanging on to your feet just in case! :o)

I think this is a good work out plan, however, I will be doing these exercises at home not at a gym. Is there a different exercise available to simulate the benefit from the low back extensions done on a machine?
