    Good Mornings & GHR


    I'm looking for some advice,

    I strained my hipflexor (left side) while squatting and can not currently squat, i'm doing madcows so as you all know squatting is a must.
    Wondering if i could sub Goodmorning's & Glute Ham Raises instead while it heals to keep hamstring strength.

    I did those two today just to make sure they wouldn't aggravate it and i got zero pain.

    I consider GHRs more of a restorative lift, but GM could be subbed for awhile. Make sure to build up to them as the technique is very critical and don't be afraid to try different stances/bar position.

    Trap bar deadlifts would be the closest you can get to a squat without actually squatting. I would use those if they cause you no pain.

    So you do not recommend doing GHRs? Thanks for the advice guys.

    Why would you think that? They're a great assistance lift, but they cannot sub in for squats.
