Good mornings


COURTESY OF GLOBAL FITNESS

Major muscles used

  • Lower back

Performing good mornings

  • Stand with feet shoulder width apart, holding a barbell (very light) across the back of your shoulder and neck. Your hands should be a little wider apart than your shoulders, palms facing away.
  • Keep your upper body upright, shoulders back, chest out, and lower back straight with a slight forward arch.
  • Keeping your back straight, and head up, slowly bend over at the waist until your back is parallel to the floor.
  • Your legs should be slightly bent at the knees at all times.
  • Raise to the starting position in a slow, controlled manner.

Be careful

  • Don't go down farther than being parallel to the floor.
  • Don't choose a weight that is too heavy. This is an advanced exercise and using too much weight could result in injury.
