Yesterday, I made a transition into the “Westside” style of powerlifting by adopting a 9 week workout posted at Dave Tate’s site and I have a question about
Good Mornings. While bodybuilding I have seen and done these several different ways. I used to do them 3 ways - arched back, flat back and rounded back. I am curious which was the preferred style! Last night I was to work up to a 1RM and I got 340 pounds, but I was using a shoulder width stance, knees slightly bent and a flat back. Fellow Westsiders’ critique me! Should I be using a different good morning style? My current squat max is 450, how is my good morning max relative to this?
Also, I added 3 sets of chins to failure (right now at 230 - that isn’t very many) and 3 sets of 6 of bar curls. Do any of you all add back and bis work? Didn’t seem like they were include much in the program so I plan on adding a few sets here and there. Good idea?
I appreciate your feedback.
