I have a uniqlo micro-down vest that i wear under my +J blazer. That + Scarf + Hat + Sweater keeps me nice and warm without adding bulk.

I personally hate winter coats though.

I rode my bike to work today in 30* weather with just a heattech shirt and uniqlo down trashbag on top. Ugly but functional

I'm sorry, but I will not listen to a word of advice coming from a person who's PR squat is in the realm of 150kg.

yeah, just an observation, the chinese technique is probably optimized for lifters that have the asian bodytype, as you said.

knucks what do you snatch and clean & jerk? So basically if you have a coach that's weaker than you you shouldn't listen to them? I was just repeating how I was taught to do good mornings by a guy that's been coaching for more than three decades.

I do neither. I had a short foray into weightlifting and it's not for me..

Irrespective of his squat PR, his advice is bad.

 

- Your stance looks fine. There's no reason why your stance for good mornings should be any different from your squat stance. 

- I'm not 100 percent sure what he means by "look forward the whole time." The goal should be to keep your spine neutral throughout the range of motion. To do that, your head/neck has to be neutral relative to your torso throughout the range of motion. "Looking forward" in the absolute sense would cause extension of the cervical spine at the bottom of the good morning, which would likely cause extension throughout the rest of the spine as well. I have no idea what your head was doing during these reps, since it's blocked by the plates, but in general "look forward" is a bad cue. Head neutral is the better way to think about it.

 

I also think you hit it on the head as far as trying to get a little more knee bend next time around. I find it's helpful to think of the RoM a little bit like a deadlift. The bottom of your good morning should have you in a similar position to the pulling position of your deadlift. 

 

Two more small things I noticed in the video:

-  This may be what you meant by "slower on the way down," but a couple of the reps looked bouncy at the top. It's worth taking a breath at the top and re-engaging your core before moving on to the next rep. 

- Obviously hard to be totally sure from a video, but it looks like you've got a little bit of lumbar flexion near the end of the set. Pause a 1:06 for a look at what I'm seeing. I have a feeling that more bend in the legs will take care of this though.

 

(Full disclosure, my squat PR is 175kg, so not sure if that means you will listen to my feedback or not, but thought I'd share anyway)

Regardless of your squat PR, your advice clearly isn't wrong smile.gif
Yes, may have had a bit of lumbar flexion, and yes, I feel the same in regards to a slight knee bend helping keep the back straight/arched
