i've been following the base routine and whenever i do good mornings people look at me like i'm
lol, about 2-3 people know what im doing. the rest just mind their own business...if they really wanted to know/care, they'd prob ask.
i just started that routine today too after a 3.5 day rest. first day got me fucked up bad...some reason my right shoulder is killing me
there were guys on both sides of me doing curls swinging the barbells and bending their backs
don't worry about it. 90% of the people in most gyms don't have a fucking clue what they are doing.
I only started them this week and really liked them. I did notice though that I could rep around 200 but as soon as I went up to 225 my form was all over the place like a mad woman's shit so I cut it back till I pin the movement.
BTW someone posted a vid of a guy doing a 4 plate GM this week, anyone have the link by any chance?
I do it but I feel my lower back gets stressed even though it's supposed to work the glutes?
"I have a very good friend, who will remain nameless, that gave me another tidbit of advice. He's been instrumental in helping me train legs. I've never pushed myself so hard. So when he gives advice, I know it's coming from a reliable source that's much better then any scientific study."
One of my favourite exercises, I feel it the most in my hammies though.
Who the hell is this guy again?
no i do them
what the fuck popped anyways? did he tear a ham? did his head fall off?
i do em
GMs are a great exercise and everyone should do them
i like that exercise but i feel a sharp pain in my tail bone at the bottom of the movement, also my back kinda hurts after that. i guess I'm doing them wrong.
it gives me a great stretch in the hamstrings, but i don't feel like it works my legs or my back nearly as well as SLDLs
I do both good mornings and sldl's when im working my post chain... works really well. I get a great burn in my hamstrings and lower back.
I was thinking the same thing
Not once have I seen anyone do GMs in real life. I get wierd look when I do them. You can feel them hitting your hams.
If you're doing them wrong then get some advice or watch a vid and analyse the movements. That or go see a doctor. Common sense = rare sense sometimes
i watched like 11ty billion videos on that movement, i'm just gona go with lighter weights till i get the form
In my 7 years of off and on working out, I've only ever seen one other person in do them.
cambered bar on top of rear delts/bent-knees ftw
Those of you with back pain from GMs are probably letting your backs arch forward. Keep your spine arched like you're trying to throw your chest out, then do the motion.
