    I've only tried GM's once, a long time ago.. so i'm giving them a shot in my next workout, which is going to be in an hour, or tomorrow, i haven't decided yet.

    I find I need to put a fair bend to my knees to get good stability. It kind of removes the hams a little (they, and my ass in particular, may disagree) but if I don't feel stable when doing any lift stupid **** happens because I'm trying to instinctively get there.

    Capn Crunch - Atta boy

    Brick - Yah man its a core killer

    Pinky - Do it up boy

    Shockboxer - If I go completely straight leg theres no way I can reach parallel im just not flexible enough, my max stretch hits about 3/4 the way to parallel, I usually put a slight bend in my knees that still gives a sick stretch in my hams and glutes but allows me ot get deeper.

    Plus stretching your flexibility limits while under lots of weight is not a good thing, expecially for hammies. You DON'T want a hamstring injury, trust me.

    How much weight should i try the first time i do them, i was thinking 45's on each side but that seams like it might be too much so maybe ill do 115 first.

    Me > Darth Vader

    rbar - First time you do em do em with just the bar, make sure you get your form down pat before adding weight, then progress to 95/115/135 etc... till you reach your limit.

    Good mornings are awesome, especially for powerlifters and strongman competitors. Start off very light and slowly add a little bit at a time, and you'll work up to some decent weights. I started off with just 95 and now at 175 pounds I can do 245, which is still nothing compared to some of the guys I know doing 400-500+ for singles. I haven't done them in a few months but I'll be tossing them in again real quick now that my competition is over.
