Good Mornings

Body Part: Hamstrings, Groin, Glutes

Equipment: Barbell

Difficulty: Intermediate


Step 1: Stand in athletic posture with your feet hip to shoulder width, toes pointing straight ahead and knees unlocked.

Step 2: Rack barbell across the upper back and maintain a slightly wider than shoulder width grip on the bar. Brace the abs and lock the shoulder blades back and down.

Step 3: Hinge at the hips and descend through a maximum range that you can maintain good posture. Keep the back flat and core braced at all times.

Step 4: Reverse the pattern pushing the hips forward to return to the starting position. Maintain posture throughout.

Step 5: Repeat for the desired number of repetitions. Avoid locking knees, slouching or over arching the lower and upper back. Keep the head in line with the back at all times.
