In most sports and activities coaches should have developed short and concise cues with their athletes as specific reminders to execute when needed.
One that gets some eye roll for some reason in the Olympic Weightlifting community is “REACH!” as it’s not as specific with direction or what the athlete should be activating.
We’d prefer a cue like “push back” if lacking upper back activation, “head through” if missing alignment, or “keep pushing” if arms or shoulders looked weak.
What do you think of when locking out overhead?
