    Goodmornings off pins?

    i been scared of doing GM's due to my lowerback injury from the past. ive tried doing GMs off pins and felt more comfortable with it. will i get the same benefits/results as a regular GM with these?

    Huge carryover to the dead. Arch hard, lots of air in the belly.

    Whatever fits better in your routine.

    Personally, I like to switch off. One week I do deadlifts, and the next week I do good mornings.

    As everybody else has said, off the pins is perfectly fine.

    I usually just tap the pins and go back up.
