At the center of athletic performance training is the importance of a strong posterior chain – low back, glutes, hamstrings and calves. This is where the athlete’s acceleration and speed is born. Glute ham raises are a very effective form of way of training this muscle group, placing an emphasis on the hamstrings, but the Reverse Back Extension places more of the emphasis on the lower back, a common problem area for athletes and non-athletes alike. This machine provides strength training in the concentric (lifting) phase and stretching in the eccentric (return) phase, blurring the line between power training and therapy, making the Reverse Back Extension a machine with a rehabilitation component, as well as an athletic training component.
