5 Main Movement Cues

MOVEMENT CUE 1: TUCK YOUR CHIN

How important is posture to exercise performance? To perform lifts well you must understand proper movement mechanics. Proper movement mechanics ensure you have good posture throughout your lifts. Without good posture you will not train the intended muscle (muscle groups). Tucking your head back and setting your shoulders down makes you stand tall and proud, but also ensures you keep your spine straight when doing a hip hinge, and allows you to utilize much more of your back muscles to strengthen your back as a whole.

Another good thing about keeping your head back and shoulders set down is that you can now push from your chest instead of the front of your shoulders and neck. Without good posture you cannot strengthen your chest.
