How to do the Good Morning Exercise

Strengthen Your Hamstrings

 
The Good Morning is a great exercise to strengthen your hamstrings, back, glutes, and core. Depending on your equipment, you can do these at home or at the gym. Just watch out – they are SNEAKY! I think that’s why they call these good mornings because you wake up the next day and are like “GOOD MORNING!!” my hammies are on fire!??
