    I dont wanna e diagnose you so take this for what its worth...

    Almost all the problems i see with good mornings (especially with women) are

    1. Core isnt stabilized- pull that belly button back and tighten up.

    2. Bar is too high up on the neck- rest it a little bit lower across the traps; this will help balance you out and keep tension in the right places

    3. Too narrow a stance- i like to make sure the insides of my feet line up with the outside of my shoulders. This moght be a little wide but it will give ypu a more steady base to work with

    4. You look up and not straight ahead- draw a line on the mirror/wall and your nose should follow that line all the way down and back up.

    5. Contracting wrong muscles- its a posterior chain exercise; not just a low back movement. Keep your back flat and squeeze your butt cheeks at the top of the movement. Make sure you keep your shoulder blades "pinned". Flex your lats and try and keep your legs straight as you can during the whole movement. I dont reccomend "locking out" your knees but some people cant really help it and its not really a big deal- do what feels best with tjose regaurds.

    Hope this helps- any body else feel free to chime in with advice if i missed anything

  11. I wanted to let you guys know that this log will be drawing to a close. And with the end of the summer passing, more than one year later, I do think that this log has outlived its usefulness. For me that time seems like now. I do believe it has been instrumental in helping me express my thoughts, as well as appreciating the accomplishments and struggles I’ve experienced this journey. If it has helped to serve anyone else in the process, then that is fantastic as well, and I would love to hear about it. I absolutely see the value in staying healthy and am working on focusing more on overall health and fitness and not just primarily weight loss. I’ve enjoyed sharing my experiences and have learned so much along the way. I can say with confidence that I am armed with a better understanding of wellness because of the suggestions, thoughts, and ambitions shared here. I see and appreciate every comment. I may start a new log focusing more on long term goals. I haven’t come up with a clever title yet so suggestions are more than welcome and I may even pick the best one. Thank you for reading and for all the amazing and inspirational people I’ve met along the way. You know who you are. And while this log may be finished, stay tuned because there’s a lot more to come.

    Booooo! Unsubbed (er...that's pretty much a moot point now)

    I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that we wouldn't mind seeing pics at the end of this log AND the start of your next.

    I've really enjoyed following along, and you amongst others on here and around me have inspired me to keep logging and keep at it too! In for the next log for sure!

    So nice of you to say, RC. Not a lot of ladies around here and you're one that is super humble and hard working - that inspires me as well.

    Take care!

  20. I didn't catch on until the end but many props for all the hard work put in. Like others before me have said, I'll be on the lookout for your next one. Congratulations on all the personal goals reached!
