How to do a good morning

You have a tough lower-body workout today, but you can do it! There's nothing better than finishing a tough workout and knowing you left it all in the gym. Do your best to complete all the exercises, sets, and reps. It's important to hit every muscle in your legs evenly.

Especially if you're relatively new to it, the good morning can be somewhat intimidating. After all, you're bending over with a loaded bar on your back, right? Isn't that what people always tell you not to do? But performed correctly, the good morning builds back, hip, butt, and hamstring strength that can't be beat.

If you need some coaching tips on the good morning, check out the video below. Elspeth Dana will walk you through how to do the exercise properly. Do it correctly, and you'll better engage the right muscles and stay injury-free!
