Hyperextensions
 
I've been seeing hyperextensions in people logs alot and i was wondering what the benefit of doing them is? Should I incorporate them in my routine?

Apparently they are essential to a 900# deadlift:

And lots of reverse hypers!!!!

Westside Barbell is the only method worth using. Seriously.

I believe that is, not terribly practical outside pulling more on your deads.

they will also help your squats by strengthening your hamstrings and your lower back, they are a good exercise, I usually throw a couple sets of them in when I do ab work. I use them as more of a core workout

ok so it's more of a light weight repetition exercise i assume. like grab a 25 lb plate and do a few sets?

I did hyperextensions for many years, early in my lifting years. They always left me crazy sore.

I prefer wide stance good mornings hands down for deadlift strength. Not saying good mornings are better for everyone, but I just like the overall strength boost they add to the posterior chain.

Hyperextensions will definitely help with deadlift though.

Reverse Hyper =/= Hyperextension

Edit: Think and experience for yourself. Conversely there are numerous successful lifters who use Sheiko and nothing else.
