The reverse hyperextension targets a number of posterior muscle groups, including the gluteus maximus, hamstrings, and lower back. This exercise is contraindicated for those with existing lower back pathologies.

A stability ball and weight bench is needed for this exercise.

Place the stability ball on the bench. Lie on top of the ball, then grasp the sides of the weight bench for stability. Slowly raise your legs off the floor until they are at least parallel. Try to keep your legs straight. Complete the movement by lowering your legs back to the starting position. Repeat as needed.
