Back extensions lift the upperbody, reverse hypers lift the legs. Lay on a flat surface, on your stomach. You need somthing to hold on to. your legs should dangle off the edge of the surface so they are, at least at 90 deg. lift both legs. You could do this off the back of a pick-up truck bed, edge of a table, or put a swiss ball on a bench, lay on the swissball so your upper body is approximately at 45 deg and your grabbing the bench. Elite fitness or the westside barbell websites have pictures. This can be done with ankle weights or by attaching weights to your ankles with webbing. They also make reverse hyper machines, which are used, almost daily by Westside powerlifters. Great for rehab and working the posterior chain.
