Let’s start with two good morning variations, using the yoke bar and a dumbbell. Both movements are implemented while kneeling. By kneeling this takes more of the lower extremities out of the movement (hamstrings and glutes). Keeping your core tight is imperative to these movements to keep pressure of the skeletal framework of your back. (For more about ‘bracing’ your core, view our blog on 9/6/19). Both exercises require good balance as well. During the good morning exercise focus on the hip hinge back and forward. Kevin did a great job demonstrating these for us, check them out here:
All three of these exercises will help build a stronger back using isolated movements that do not require much weight.
I always want to learn more! Part of the reason is to pass it on to others. Last week I began a course by Mac Lake called Leading With Questions – The Key to Unlocking the Potential of Your Team. It includes 14 videos, a print out PDF packet, and lots of homework. I highly recommend it for those of you who may be in management positions, hiring, or even want to learn how to ask better questions for the goal of better communication within your family.
Here is the link, watch the promo video, and if you have any questions let me know.
Until next time Iron Made Community.
