    Well, it's a REVERSE hyper extension, not a regular hyperextension.

    That guy healed his back with reverse hyper extension? You mean lifting the legs and not the upper body?

    As far as I know, the legs moving would be a reverse hyperextension, yes.

    I got to learn new terms. Wow, I have really been out of the loop. What is motorboating?

    Damnit Bullwhip, don't derail this important thread! Jackrusher is trying to make a serious decision and he don't need trolls like going off about stuff like motorboating.

    ^^^ Yep. The legs, more precisely the hamstrings, certainly the glutes, and to a degree the calves (acting as knee flexors.) It's important to contract the glutes (think cracking a walnut with it... srlsy.) Contracting the glutes make sure you lock the hip in place (avoiding flexing the hip or worse, flexing the lower back.)

    Bullwhip, yep, Lou Simmons credits the reverse hyper for healing. He didn't actually heal his back, but a herniation at the bottom disks going into the sacral. He attributes the movement helps in moving those disks in a healthy manner, removing scar tissue.

    This is just annectodal from his part, but those dudes try all kind of stuff to heal and get stronger, keeping what works. Plus, in principle, what Simmons hypothesizes makes sense. The bottom of the movement stretches the glutes and the ligaments that connect the hips with the lower back WITHOUT flexing the lower back (flexion of the lower back being a big no-no.)

    In many ways, the bottom part of the reverse hyper it's akin to the hip/glute stretching and strengthening that you get with the downward facing dog or triangle yoga poses. When I busted my back, my chiro would strap me to a machine that looks like the reverse hyper. The machine would get my legs to swing back and forth in a manner resembling the reverse hyper (while he would put pressure with his hands on my lower back disks and iliacus - that movement got rid of a lot of scar tissue and helped me reduce the pain and regain some ROM.

    It's good stuff.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    True dat. I've been doing these unweighted at home (ghetto-rig) and at the park (monkey bars), worked into a set of yoga poses (as above plus up-dog, shoulder stands and head stands). The combination is doing wonders for the lower back pain I'd started to develop doing loads of guard/inverted guard at BJJ.

    I don't claim to know anything, but...
    What scar tissue? In the muscle or in the ligaments or in the disks itself? P.S. Where do you guys finding helpful chiropractors? Mine sucked.
