Deep good mornings from today

This is a version we use in our training. I try to get my head to, or below parallel at the bottom. Caution, this exercise can be very dangerous and care must be taken to "stay tight" and maintain at least a neutral lower back position. Also, never do heavy GMs for singles.

I take that I said in the speed pulls thread back - stop posting videos, they're making me cry out of self-pity now.

Re: Deep good mornings from today

Chris is the advantage of that bar, making it easier on your shoulders or something else ??

Nice GMs by the way

Arturo, thanks .

Terry, right, it is much easier on the shoulders for that particular movement. For squatting it adds a chaotic factor at it will want to swing if you do not control it so it helps teach the lifter to stay tight.

Great video. Rage Against the Machine is a staple in my workout Ipod too!

Nice, Chris.

I was noticing you do a bent knee version of the GM. According to exrx that says it hits the glutes primarily?

Do you use a stiff leg version at all? I think I never really got the knack down of the bent knee version.

Lol at Exrx... To be clear, with 400+ lbs there has to be some knee bend to protect your lower back. While I do bend my knees a bit there is no quad drive. The exercise you see me perform in the video completely smokes my back. It obviously works the glutes, but the lower and mid back see the primary focus.

Re: Deep good mornings from today

Ahh, thanks. It's been awhile since I've done any of them heavy. Since August. Since I do a fairly straight leg version, I feel them in my hams definitely.

Since then I've only been doing them in my barbell WU and it's bar only. I'll be re-adding them when I get back home.

Re: Deep good mornings from today

Bent knee is usually fairly balanced between hamstrings and glutes.

Thanks, Donald. I've never tried it that way before. Will try next week I'd imagine.
