    Re: Good mornings

    I started incorporating them about 2 months ago. I'm running a gram of test and 100mg drol at the moment though so I've had to cut them out. I have to go lay down in the back room of the gym between sets of deads as it is.

    Re: Good mornings

    They are a staple for me. When my GM goes up, my DL and front squat go up... I like to work them for a few warm up sets then go heavy for 7, 5, 3. Never done it for a ME day lift. Most I've done was 280 for 3 I believe.

    the exact moment when you start driving upwards with a heavy single of good mornings makes you want to take up GOLF.

    Re: Good mornings

    i love good mornings when i'm not ****in crippled. i don't go real heavy on them though. they make my hamstrings more sore than any other excercise if i do them narrow stance.

    Agree with heavyDeads: tight stance, great on the hamstrings. Light to moderate weight.

    Re: Good mornings

    I have incorporated them in my routines for as long as I can remember. I like to mix it up a lot. I do my standards DLs, Squats, but I also mix in Good Mornings, Zelchers, Front Squats, and uneven Squats. It is essential for my overall Leg growth, core strength, and back strength.
