We called them hypertextensions as far back as I can remember. I believe they called this exercise the hyperextension as far back as the 50s or earlier. I know a lot of the old school articles reference hyperextensions.

I recall Gironda calling them "Back hyperextensions". So over the years it seems the two phrases grew out of the same tree.

Someone correct me if I am wrong.
