Re: New to a great thing
The CrossFit FAQ (in yellow above) contains substitutions for many exercises. For back extensions you can sub good mornings, or supermans. My feeling is that both of those are easier than back extensions, but I suppose you could add weight if you feel like it.
Welcome to the club!

If you go to a track at like a high school use the bleachers and hook your feet underneat the seat. Make sure to bring a towel to pad your midsection/hips from the sharper corners.

Think creative.
