MOVEMENT TIP: The Good Morning

CrossFit Seminar Staff member Julie Foucher demonstrates another hinge movement, the Good Morning. The Good Morning is an excellent exercise to strengthen the back, the glutes and the hamstrings. With the knees are only slightly bent in this exercise, it is also a great one to use when warming up and gently stretching the hamstrings. Too keep your spine safe, make sure the barbell sits across your traps and NOT on your spine (watch as it may roll as you bend forward) and also ensure that you keep your spine neutral (i.e. in almost a slight back bend working against gravity and the weight of the barbell).[/vc_column_text][us_separator type=”invisible”][vc_column_text]
