    Question about good mornings--

    I looked at this link: http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Hamstrings/BBGoodMorning.html

    Tonight a PT at my gym showed me good mornings with the bar grasped in front, just a little wider than the thighs. Then, bend at the knees and let the torso come down parallel to the floor with the bar hanging, while pushing the butt out. This seems to be some kind of modified version.

    Thoughts?

    What the PT showed you sounds more like a stiff legged deadlift.

    Yeah, I was thinking that too. He had another PT in training following us, and as I was doing them, he was explaining that a lot of people do good monrings wrong, and this version helped people do it correctly. The odd thing about this form though (I haven't tried the other way yet), is that after about 6-7 reps, you feel the lower back start to recruit a lot.

    i do it like the hot chick does, and with heavier weight, if im stuck at the bottom, i bend the knees a bit to help. after all, gotta be strong at the knees.

    I personally find the bent leg GM to hit the hams much better than either SLDLs or oly style GMs
