    Default A New Cue for Setting the Lower Back | Mark Rippetoe

    Nick Delgadillo is responsible for inventing what may be the most effective cue for correcting an unlocked lower back ever devised. In a video released on this website on March 7, 2019, he describes a method for cueing the lumbar extension for the deadlift start position that works better than anything I've ever used. In fact, I use it myself now when I pull.

    Nick’s citation list grows (perhaps to “one”!).

    And kudos to Rip for “inspiring innovation”.

    I will give this a try today, if I could get through all my DL work without a tight lower back at the end it'd be great.

    Beautiful simple cue. I'm so glad I checked the website today.

    I have been having trouble keeping form tight during squatting recently. would this be a good cue to think about during the squat?

    Was the cue originally, "Shove your junk between your legs" and then edited from there?

    I think I remember Nick telling me that when I met him at WFAC. I drove up from Dallas to see him because I had trouble setting my back on the DL.

    But the explanation of the cue was the proprioceptive effect of the contact between belly and thighs...
