When Good Cues Go Bad

Strength and Conditioning, Physical Therapy, Mobility & Recovery

This past week I watched a great video on MobilityWod addressing the cue of arching your back. While the video mostly focused on the specific cue of arching, it seemed to me that the ultimate purpose of the video was to address a larger point.


If you’ve spent any amount of time browsing online fitness forums you’ve probably seen what I’m talking about. No matter what cue is given, there’s always someone ready to give a counterargument as to why that cue isn’t valid. Frequently this leads to some combination of flaming, trolling, and personal attacks because the Internet is fun like that.
