Do not arch the back. Do not throw weight rapidly. Let weight back down slowly in a controlled manner.
• Try a standing kickback with tubing or ankle weights or standing leg curls with ankle weights.
• Do not look up, especially if you have neck problems. Rest your chin or forehead on the pad instead.
• If you have lower back problems, move the weight even more slowly and resist the temptation to arch your back to complete the movement.
