    Leo said this the other day, arch your back and stick your ass out

    Please refrain from mentioning your height because it really doesn't matter

    :hsugh: matters with squats and bench and deadlifts, dunno why it wouldnt matter with this...

    i've been arching my back but i thought it wasn't a good idea so i'd been working on keeping it straight... guess so :wiggle:

    It doesn't matter as far as form is concerned.

    Do you have a reverse hyper extension at your gym? We have one at mine and I LOVE it. I feel that it has helped my squat/dead.

    I've read many times on here that tall people usually bench less and deadlift more due to leverage.

    Think about it... longer arms, longer legs = moving the weight further to reach parallel.

    Same machine.. minus the leg holders we just have a band. I wish we had the leg holders cause it would help me keep the momentum from cheating me out of some work.
