Another important variation with Kettlebells – the Good morning!

For a personal trainer to add variation to the client’s workout at home is a big challenge. If barbells are available, which is not very common, then the workouts can be wholesome, but if the member does not have barbells & dumbbells, then some important workouts may have to be left out. However, the ‘Good Morning’ can be one of the must do lifts if Kettlebells are available instead.

The Good Morning predominantly works the Hamstrings that are responsible for hip extension.

Before starting the good morning, ensure the client is able to arch the back correctly while bending forward. Once familiar with the movements, hold the Kettlebell on the upper back, elbows pointing forward. Keeping the chest up and hinged at the hips, push the buttocks backwards keeping the weight on your heels. Knees can bend slightly in motion.
