- Kneel below high pulley. Grasp cable rope attachment with
both hands. Place wrists against head. Position hips back and
flex hips, allowing resistance on cable pulley to lift torso
upward so spine is hyperextended.
- With hips stationary, flex waist so elbows travel toward
middle of thighs. Return and repeat.
- Note movement occurs in waist, not hips. See Spot
Reduction Myth. Hyperextension of spine at top of motion
is achieved by anterior rotation of pelvis with flexed hips.
Certain individuals may need to keep their neck in neutral position
with space between their chin and sternum. If two soft stirrups
are used instead of rope attachment, grasp stirrups at side of
head. Also see alternative
technique. Movement can also be performed standing up, see
Cable Standing Overhead
