    bent knee allows you to bend over to more of a 90 deg angle and pushing up focuses more on your back/glutes. straight leg stretches and incorporates the hamstrings as the primary muscle for movement

    i dont like good mornings.
    Arnold's routine had me doing them for the last four months. Just this week my workout buddy and I decided we're not going to do them anymore. I just dont like having to push press the weight off the back of my neck when im done. I'd rather do a SLDL or something similar... something where I can just drop the weight if I need to.

    But yeah for aesthetics purposes i don't think there's any point in doing goodmornings, just do RDLs instead.

    Not flaming but wtf are you talking about? You walk into the rack, unrack it like a squat, step back, gm it, step in and rack it. What am I missing?

    edit: lawls at barrage of WTF responses :big grin:

    lol, i figured I'd get these kind of responses. I know insulting good mornings are kinda like insulting allah to you guys. At my gym we dont have a proper rack to do what you are suggesting. I'd probably have to use the smith. :)keke:)

    Current GM routine for me looks like this:
    1) grab barbell
    2) clean/press it
    3) put it behind the back
    4) GM
    5) press it back up. Usually at this point im tired so I need to cheat to get it up.
    6) put it back on the rack.

    Weighted good mornings are a good way to bust up sacral nerve endings...in fact I think that happened to Bruce Lee.
    I stick with deadlifts, and I use light weights good mornings for calisthenics/stretching. 60-80 lbs. is enough, I think. As long as you can deadlift well, why go to an exercise that is riskier in terms of injury?

    I'll agree with you to an extent, but I've seen several people injured by good mornings. A lot of people have incorrect form for one, but one place that gets injured or broken down doing this is the sacral region of the spine. You see busted hammies as well sometimes.

    I guess you shouldn't bench press because you see torn pecs from it, shouldn't squat because people tear their patella tendons, shouldn't run because torn hamstrings can result from it. Let's all just stick to concentration curls with pink dumbbells.

    Pink dumbbells ftw :rofl:
    Yeah of course people get injured doing every exercise, but it's an exercise that should be treated with a little more respect. It has a higher injury rate than a lot of other exercises. If someone gets up there with it, great. It's something to be pretty careful with.

    Learn how to do them properly, and don't go beyond what you're capable and you'll be fine.

    I read that as "I'm a dumbass who doesn't like good mornings because I don't know wtf I'm doing"
