Helpful cues!

Here are some helpful coaching cues that I have found effective with popular movements.


Hip hinge – so we are talking deadlifts, hip thrusts and glute bridges

Imagine you are closing a car door with your bum


This is a funny one “imagine you have to do a pee but you have morning wood”



Imagine you are about to get punched in the stomach


Hip thrust

Like you are scooping up a coin between you bum cheeks



Feet position on train tracks 


Lats for deadlift

Squeeze the juice out of the oranges that are in your armpits


Pull ups

Pull the bar to the ground


Credit for some of these from Lift the bar and the rest I just picked up along the way 😊


Do you have any memorable couching cues?
