How To Do Good Morning Exercise
1- Holding your body upright, position a barbell behind your neck and resting on the upper back. Keep your knees slightly bent and your spine neutral.
2- Bending slightly at your knees and hips, start to lean forward under control. Keep your chin up—it will stop you from rounding your back.
3- Lean forward by pivoting at the hip. Continue lowering your chest, keeping the back neutral and allowing your knees to bend slightly.
4- Flex as far as you can. With practice, your back may be parallel to the floor. Return to the start position, breathing out as you go.
Good Morning Exercise Benefits
- A good morning exercise is a hip hinge movement that helps strengthen your butt and legs by targeting your back, hamstrings, glutes, and adductors.
- When done right, a good morning workout is effective for strengthening your back and making it more flexible. However, if you have just started, it is recommended to try the movement with empty weight.
