    Understood, I can't begin to explain how my brain works but the cue works for me.

    The mental image I have now of someone putting his belly between his thighs during the setup for the bench press is priceless.

    Lol...I am struggling with that image myself. I assure that my feet are still on the ground during the BP.

    Sounds familiar, coach!

    “When you set your lumbar spine into extension at the start of the pull, your belly moves down between your thighs, and the belt goes with it. When your back is set, the belly/belt assembly will fit between your thighs with a varying degree of tightness. But if your waist is short and the belt is too wide, it touches your upper thighs at the hip flexors during the process of squeezing out the last of the lumbar flexion.”

    From your article about the deadlift and the belt

    Rip,

    If another edition/revision of SSBBT ever gets made, please add this cue in.
