    I miss hyper extensions. How do you suppose I could pull that off with one spotter and one adjustable bench (plus chairs if needed)?

    try and lodge your heels under something(radiator,chair with weights on etc),and use the bench to support you.

    Thanks Bax. Nice simple idea. It just requires a bit of thought to add a foot plate and ankle/leg retainer/rest to work effectively.

    I think what there doing with this is hanging a dumbbell or plates around the ankles and lifting the legs up and down. *If you shorten up the bench a little and make it wider maybe you could use some extra rack pins with foam wrapped around it to support the ankles. *Just a thought.
