Comfortable, Maximus, and Memes: GOOD MORNING @OPTIMUMTRAINING GOOD MORNING Main Muscle: Lower Back Secondary Muscles: Glutes, Hamstrings Exercise Type: Isolation, Pull Equipment Required: Barbell, Weight Plates The good morning is a great weight training exercise for your lower back as well as your glutes (gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus) and hamstring muscle groups. The good morning is often used as an assistance exercise to help improve the deadlift and squat by strengthening the core. This good morning variation, which uses a barbell, is the most popular. Instructions: 1⃣ Start with a barbell across your shoulders behind your neck. You should be standing up straight with your abs tensed to support your back and your arms on each side of your head balancing the bar. 3⃣ Inhale and lower your torso until it is parallel with the floor by bending at the hips while keeping your legs stationary and your back straight. Make sure your back and knees are as straight as possible. 3⃣ Hold this bottom position for a moment then slowly raise yourself back to the starting position by bending at the hips and raising your head. Tips: 1⃣ Start with the barbell on a squat rack so you can easily get the barbell into the starting position. 2⃣ Begin with a very small amount of weight and increase as you feel more comfortable with the lift. 3⃣ Keep your back straight throughout the lift and try to bend your knees as little as possible. 4⃣ Keep your head up at all times as looking down will get you off balance and also maintain a straight back.
