I do them right after squats, and generally rep at about about 55% of my squat max. I think repping at 55-60% of squat max is a good goal to strive for. Many guys work up to 3 rep max on good mornings, but I've never tired that.

One of the reasons I do good mornings after squats is because they feel so much lighter. It's a CNS mind trick to put heavy weight on your back, and then drop down and rep out. The weight always feels lighter.

Jedi mind tricks!

BTW, if you ever want to totally destroy your hamstrings, try sumo deadlifts.
