Squeeze the Orange!
This is one of my all-time favorite cues, and one I use often because it accomplishes a lot when it comes to cleaning up deadlift technique:
- This cue promotes more full-body tension.
- It promotes more posterior tilt of scapulae, providing a smidge more of a biomechanical advantage.
- It helps to engage the lats to higher degree, which aids in upper back tension and less chance of rounding.
- It evidently does NOT help in preventing me from being awkward AF at the end of this video.
