By the way, I do not believe most people need to use the good morning as their max-effort lift on lower body day.
There are too many chances for injury, poor form, etc. This applies to most people, although, some who do use Westside and train with Dave Tate, Jim Wendler, Louie Simmons, etc. may still use them in their training. But they are also “elite” lifters in powerlifting.
Hmm, on the one hand I could take the advise of Louie Simmons, who has coached countless lifters to reach their elite and beyond, who has years of experience, research, and results.
Ooooor, I could take the advice of someone who has been lifting 10+ years and weighs a buck fifty.
Who knows more about what movements to use for developing maximal strength? hmmmmm… Yeah, your right, good morning are bad news!
Maybe you should take a look at Dave Tate’s and Jim Wendler’s advice concerning the use of GM’s as a max-effort lift on the EliteFTS.com web site (Q&A’s and articles). They’ve addressed it numerous times and in several articles about how it’s rarely used or recommended anymore.
Don’t try to use my 10+ years of lifting experience or the fact that I weigh 150lbs as a reason not to listen to what I said/advise. Nice try though!
By the way, what’s the point of commenting on my stats if you have nothing to show for yourself? I have no problem with my stats. Nor should anyone else.
