Good Mornings are an advanced exercise that work your lower back while incorporating the hamstrings.

Muscle group: Back


Start with a barbell just behind your shoulders. You should be standing up straight with your abs tensed to support your back.

Next, start leaning forward. Lowering your torso so that it'll eventually be parallel with the ground. To keep balance you'll push your hips back and bend your knees slightly. Try bend your knees as little as possible.

Stop when your body is parallel with the ground. Make sure you're still looking ahead of you and your back is as straight as possible. Hold this bottom position for a second then slowly raise yourself back to the starting position.


Start with the barbell on a squat rack. This way you can easily get the barbell into the starting position.
