@Karen Smith Thanks for your recent article. So good I printed it and emailed it around.

Could you elaborate on the cue to imagine an x on the back? I can't connect that thought with screwing in the shoulders.

Thanks!

Karen explained further on the articles comments. Very helpful:
"As for the “X” cue – if you visualize taking your right lat and putting it in your left back pant pocket and the left lat in the right back pocket… This would be the “X” that I am speaking of. This helps people engage the lats and remember to tense the glutes in order to move the body (descend and ascend) as one unit vs sagging and disconnecting."
