Hey everyone, it’s been a while since the last time I was on this forum. Anyway, so I have been doing the good morning exercise for over 6 weeks now and recently I have been uncertain as to whether I hit my hams and glutes correctly when doing the good morning exercise (bent-legged version). For some reason, I do not feel those muscles working as much as my lower back muscles. During the eccentric phase, I always focus on pushing my hips out while trying to maintain an arch in my lower back. Then, during the concentric phase I focus on pushing my hips forward.
I mean, I do feel a stretch in my hamstrings during the eccentric phase and then the hams and glutes contracting to some extent during the concentric phase. However, I still feel my lower back muscles working more so than my hamstring and glute muscles. Also, I always move the weight with a slow-to-moderate pace. In addition, I use a wall behind to make sure that my butt touches it when moving it backward. I am not sure what do and any help would once again be appreciated.
