Heavy presses--more than any other of the big four lifts--do not forgive form errors. Certain cues help novices begin pressing competently and, if you are a coach, must be cued early and often to your lifters.
The combined cues “close grip, elbows forward, wrists straight” help the lifter get into the correct bottom position, which contributes to a mechanically efficient bar path. For the press, this means a bar path that stays close to the lifter’s face and moves in a straight line from the bottom to the top position.
Learn the most important cues that coaches use on novices and find themselves regularly using with all clients.
