Good Morning

The barbell good morning is an exercise that targets glute, hamstring, and lower back development. It is often trained as an accessory movement to the deadlift, but also has value on its own. It is sometimes performed for reps in traditional strength-focused rep ranges such as 5-8 reps per set, but due to the risk posed to the lower back, is rarely treated as a max-effort single-rep lift.


  1. Accessory exercise the deadlift and squat
  2. Challenges upper back and core strength
  3. Trains correct hinging motion
  4. Serious hamstring and glute builder
