MOVEMENT DEMOS | Hip Extension vs Back Extension

Performed on the GHD machine, it is important to note the differences between the Hip and Back Extensions. Note the names!

In a Back Ext, only the back is extending, the hips are trapped and neutral.

In a Hip Ext, the back stays rigid and flat while just the hips rotate.

There is also something called a Hip/Back Extension that is a combination of both.
