When the weight gets heavy, staying upright can be a real challenge.
This is one of my favorite cues to prevent pitching forward.
Out of the hole, lead with your head and upper back to prevent pitching forward.
On the left I maintain an upright posture. Out of the hole I initiate by driving my chin and traps into the bar like I’m trying to flick it off my back.
On the right, I lead with my hips causing me to pitch forward.
