Default training spinal erectors dynamically

Hey guys,

to train the spinal erectors in a dynamically way i generally use back extensions with a rounded back and it works well.
but do you have other excercises? perhaps seated good mornings but instead of a straight back all the time round the back and then raise it up on each rep? or the same execution on a seated back training machine?
it's important for me, that all these excercises training the spinal erectors dynamically and not statically!

thank you all for your inputs.

The back extensions and seated good mornings (with very light weight) should be just fine. I don't think it's that necessary to have a lot of dynamic spinal erector-strengthening exercises. One or two would suffice considering most exercises are done with a flat back that is held statically throughout.

Have you tried gatherings? I can feel my lower back working pretty hard in these, and you get a nice stretch in the low back at the bottom.

This video is of the two intermediate versions. The second one, the straight leg version, is the one that I have been using and I really like it. He also has videos of easier versions and harder versions on his youtube channel.

How often do you do that particular exercise and for what rep/set scheme? Thanks!!

Right now I'm doing it twice a week, after I train some handstands. As for reps, right now I do 10, 8, 6, but I'm working towards 3 sets of 10 unbroken reps.

as you mentioned, try round back good mornings and also round back deadlifts with light weights extending the spine as you come up, hyper extensions on an exercise ball? why?
