Goodmornings Explosiveness

Recommended Posts

I have found myself struggling with deadlifts and decided to reduce the pundage and supplement them with good mornings. 

 

Yesterday was my first good morning exercise and I seem to have developed some pain in the lower back. I'll try to get the video up soon but my guess is it is because I was trying to be explosive when coming up from the bent position. 

 

Are you supposed to come up slowly or explode from the bent position?

You gotta keep a good arch throughout the good morning.  If you allow your lower back to round you are putting too much strain on the spine.  Just like with deadlifts and squats, brace hard throughout the movement.

 

Be explosive as you can while maintaining a good brace, but never round the lower back.

I'd say good mornings compliment squats more than deadlifts.

I wonder if you allowed your spine to flex?
