Partner bench back extension

The partner bench back extension is a clever way to target the glutes and spinal erector muscles. There are machines and angled benches that allow this exercise to be performed solo, but, lacking those, all you need is a bench and a workout partner. It is usually performed for high reps as a burnout or accessory movement for lower-body training.


  1. Works the spinal erectors, glutes, and hamstrings
  2. Promotes lower back health
  3. Works posterior chain of body without spinal loading
