    place your arms over your head, anything that moves your body weight further out from your hips

    You can do those with your legs straight to make it harder.

    That's what I do. Only sets of 5 though and alot slower than that.

    What do you call the vertical bench? I've been listing it as roman chair.

    Dragon flags. Hold on the bench, straighten back and legs upwards to the ceiling, lower legs slowly to near 90 degree angle, lift again. That's 1 rep.

    I would probably lower only to about 30 degrees when I tried them.
    I had (still do) tendonitis and doing these made them flare up the worst.
