I have a couple ideas. I wouldn't mind hearing Glenn's opinion though. Here are my ideas.

1. I watched a Dan John video one time and his coaching cue wasn't the basic "jump/shrug" most coaches do. It was something like jump and look at the ceiling.

2. I also saw in the WCC Lifting video, they suggested putting a picture on the ceiling and extending until you catch a glimpse of that picture in your upper peripheral view, then pull under the bar.

Do those make sense?
