Iron Cross Banded Good Mornings
Hey check this out. I was lucky enough to attend the Secrets of Strength Seminar down in NJ a few months ago. While I was there, I was talking with my boy Joe Defranco and was telling him about a modification for the banded goodmornings his athletes were doing.
I told Joe the goal of banded good mornings was not only to activate the posterior chain (glutes, hamstrings, erectors (isometrically)) while grooving a neutral position hip flexion/extension movement. I told Joe if we hope to engage the posterior we need to engage the upper back, including the lats, rhomboids and traps. Joe is a smart dude and he exactly what I was talking about as soon as I said it.
Band pull aparts are a great way to target this upper back musculature. So why not combine the two movements.
Here is Joe’s video giving me props and again providing his athlete’s with some innovative training means.
