    I've been doing the 45 degree hyper extension machine

    But I seem to get lightheaded, and today I just about blacked out afterwards. I think I could fix this by slowing down (I don't do them fast really, I could just go slower) but I'm wondering what brolly crew does. I do these mainly because on really long mountain bike rides or motorcycle rides my lower back starts to really hurt.

    Yeah hitting your lower back hard with heavy deads would probably just make it fatigue quicker lol.

    Aside from hurting. Does it radiate anywhere? Is it sharp pain? Is there any numbness associated with it?

    Nope, it's just muscle style pain.... the hurt is similar to the hurt you get in your arms when doing a really hard workout (or chest or whatever).. like lactic acid buildup.

    It sounds like either muscle weakness or the wrong bike. I ride fairly consistantly and don't have the same problem. Have someone at a local bie shop watch you ride. They may be able to help.

    45* hyperextensions only ever worked my hamstrings personally. I never felt shit in my lower back.



    Deadlifts > *

    as far as I understand, the best thing you can do to help an ailing back is tighten up your core (ie. more ab work) and it will give you more support.
