The best part is that these Roman chair exercises can be done by both men and women. However, you need to ensure that you place your legs and hands properly, to avoid the risk of injuries.

Here are a couple of effective ones for hyperextension-
Lower Ab Leg Lifts
For this, just stand with the back against the chair with feet on the floor. Snuggle the lower back into the cushion and grab handles. Suck the abs in and bend knees. Then left the legs till they are parallel to the hips and hold for a couple of seconds! Repeat at least 5 times.
Just place yourself on the back extension with face down and place the abs above the hips on the rolled cushion. Tuck the feet under the rolled cushion for stability and let the body hang forward. For an added pull, tuck the arms under the chest.
Do consult an expert before doing this and ask someone to assist you if you are having trouble to avoid injuries.
