How To Perform Exercise

The good morning exercise is a workout that helps strengthen and work your lower back while also working the hamstrings.

Steps :

1.) Start off with resting a barbell just behind your shoulders and standing up straight with your feet shoulder width apart and abs tight to support your back.

2.) Once in position start leaning forward, lowering your torso until it is parallel to the ground and knees slightly bent.

3.) When your body is parallel to the ground, stop and hold the position for a count while looking forward then return back to the starting position and repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

Tips :

1.) Before you begin this exercise, make sure that you have the barbell on the squat rack so that it is easier to get into the starting position.
