This exercise (Good Morning + Squat) is taken from this video of Olesiy Torokhtiy:
I wanted to explore the best technique to do that.
- My first doubt is about the balance. The barbell is not above the midfoot. On the way down our butt goes backwards so it is ok (like in squat) that te barbell must be slightly in front of the midfoot. But that shift depends on the weight and with huge loads it must be practically above the midfoot.
In this Good Morning + Squat Exercise, it seems to me that at the end of the good morning phase, the barbell position cannot be changed too much, and that is enough in front of the midfoot. How can we deal with huge loads in this exercise? Can a low bar position be better since it puts the barbell closer to the midfoot line?
- My second doubt is about the stability. The squat starts with the knees locked at the top and with the hip under the parallel at bottom. And the good morning? I see his knees are not locked when he is parallel to the ground. This makes me feel unstable and without a reference point. Do you have some suggestion to feel it more stable?
