    Back Extention vs. Hyperextention

    I was looking at the .gif's on ExRx, and I really don't see much of a difference between the two except that the guy rounds is back a tad more on the Back Extentions.

    Is there another difference besides that? Is that even a difference?

    I consider them almost the same. Going by the names back extension would mean going from a rounded back to a straight back(hence extension) and hyper extension was moreless a hamstring/ass movement in that you keep your bback in a neutral/arched position.
