Second, try to keep your hips under the bar as you dip and drive. Lastly, Gregg Everett uses a good cue that I try to use as well: aim for the back of your neck. If you try to aim for the back of your neck, you're going to naturally want to stay more vertical with your dip/drive and it will help you accelerate the bar into the proper position when overhead.

I hope this helps in some way.

Hi Javi,

Thanks for the response. I'm new to all of this so my eye isn't trained well to do the video analysis.

When you say aim for the back of my neck at what point are you referring to? at the start of my drive? or start of my dip? or top of my drive?


any other comments are highly appreciated!
