Instructions: How To

This exercise is a variation on Good Mornings. Like Good Mornings, this exercise is a compound exercise that primarily targets muscles in the rear chain (backside of the body), but especially the hamstrings, and lower back. Using a Loop Band to add resistance allows you to have more resistance at the top of the movement than the bottom.

  1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart with toes pointed slightly outward.
  2. Place the band under the midfoot area and pull the loop up over your head so it rests across the back of your shoulders.
  3. Keep your knees slightly bent and hands on the hips (or on the band) throughout the movement.
  4. Keep your heels planted firmly on the ground and brace your core as you begin to descend by pushing your hips slightly back and hinging forward.
  5. Maintain a neutral position of the neck throughout the exercise.
  6. Slowly return to the starting position by activating the glutes, extending the lower back, and slowly pushing the hips forward until you are in an upright position.

Common Mistakes

  • Varying Tension with Bands

    Resistance increases as you stretch a band. Make sure you’re using a band that allows you to move through your full range of motion. The resistance may feel too light during parts of the movement.
