Default You gotta try this movement!

I was screwing around going through the old articles on T-nation today at work when I came across a movement that sounded good and just happened to fit perfectly into my plan for the gym today, so I gave it a try and it kicked my butt.

I used the back hyperextension machine at the gym, but when I lifted my upper body up I also did a barbell row with 95 lbs. I know, it seems obvious, if not a little redundant, but holy crap, it hit EVERYTHING in the back of my body, including my calves. I was surprised at how hard it hit the chain going from the lower back into the hamstrings then finishing in the calves.

The hyper machine was to low to let me stretch at the bottom, so I really only got to do the top half of the movement, but the squeeze throughout the posterior chain was great.

Sounds like some good old school fun.
