How about some single-leg deads or goodmornings for the posterior chain? keep it up!

Thanks for your participation and your question. We are very impressed with your identification of posterior chain exercises!

Both are great examples of hip extensor training. Good mornings are a challenge for some since the load (usually a barbell) is placed on top of the shoulders which makes for a really long moment arm (distance from axis to load).

With exercise selection, look for movements in which the "natural" movement patterns are re-enforced. For example, how many movements require the body to hip flex WITHOUT motion at any other part of the body (except for getting the groceries out of your trunk).

Just some food for thought...look to "nourish" your body with movements that are "functional" for what your daily/performance activities require.

If you've ever see anyone do single leg deads you know there's plenty of movements going on. Same with the single leg squat. Throw in a Bosu and enjoy the show.

I enjoy "functional exercises". They're icing on the cake.
