I’ve mentioned my gimpy hip on this forum a number of times before, but I wanted to find out several things. First, is there an ideal ratio of ones squat to goodmorning weights? I can do a back squat with crappy form to parallel with about 450, and I can do goodmornings, with my upperbody going to just above parallel and only a slight bend in my knees with 405. I suspect that my goodmornings are so close to my squats, because my hip hurts badly when I squat down, bending at the knee, hip, and waste, but in Goodmornings, where I mostly just bend at the waste, my hip barely hurts at all.
Secondly, if my goodmornings are too close to my squat, but my hip hurts too much to squat these days, am I building a problematic imbalance by continuing to work on my goodmorning? Or will the increased strength from GMs eventually just help my squat (assuming my hip is one day better)?
Finally, I like to do my max effort goodmornings for triples, but I go deeper on each rep: that is, the first rep is really just a partial, and then, as I build up courage over several reps with p.r. weight, I finally try to go to parallel. I am wondering if anyone else does their max effort work this way, and if anyone sees any problems with it (it does seem a little cowardly).
