Another good thing (a stretch not an exercise) is to lay on your back and push your body off of the ground keeping your hands and feet planted as close together as possible. These have a name but i cant remember them. I should because I do them every day but oh well.

Bridges.

A back bend is when you start from standing and lean back into a bridge position, and a back walkover would be when you kick out of a bridge over your hands to your feet.

As for good back exercises.. for lower back. Any type of supermans, back hyperextensions, DEADLIFTS, squats, oly lifts, etc. Start light to build up endurance in your lower back and then work your way up.
