Shoulder To Hip Lat Activation Cue

KEY TO ENGAGING LATS ON THE TAKE OUT 

Do you work with anyone that fights your take out and ends up taking the bar over their neck?

Do you want to optimize your lat activation from the start? Make the press easier? Bench more weight perhaps? 🤔🤔😉

Start thinking shoulder blades to hips when you take the bar out. I also express this as trying to give yourself a lat cramp. You're effectively using your lats to pull your shoulders closer to your hips

Hence why you're able to drag the bar out further while feeling balanced. You'll be a lot more stable with your press as well! Remember, there is always MORE to give!
