Strength Tips & Client Highlight

Good Mornings are one of my favorites for building your entire posterior chain and for developing bigger, stronger glutes and hamstrings. With your weight on your heels and knees slightly bent, hinge your hips by pushing your butt back to the wall behind you. When your hamstrings are fully stretched, return to a standing position by standing up through your heels and squeezing your glutes like you’re trying to crack a walnut between your butt cheeks. Hit your low back and erectors more by standing in a narrow stance like your conventional deadlift (1st two reps). Try a more hip dominant variation by taking a wider stance like your squat or sumo deadlift (2nd two reps). An awesome exercise for building your deadlift, and a bigger, stronger backside. @chickenlegsnomore #powerlifting #goodmorning #deadlift #girlswhopowerlift #glutes #hams
