    Body cues/tips for each exercise - where to find them?

    For instance, in a RDL, I'm referring to cues like - "make sure no one can take the pen from your armpits", and NOT stuff like "keep the bar close to your thighs".

    Where can I find a comprehensive list of cues for each exercise, so that I can perform them in good form?

    Thank you.

    So you're looking for an extensive list of analogy cues for every single exercise, that do not contain any direct instructional cues, because you feel this will allow you to perform exercises with good form?

    Try google if serious.

    I have already tried google, hence the reason I'm here. Yes I'm serious.

    Nobody is going to sit here and type them all out for you if thats what you're looking for. Google usually has the answers.

    This is the first one I found with a simple 3 second google search. https://legionathletics.com/weightlifting-cues/
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you did not do.

    Learn what cues are for. Then you'd understand why there's no comprehensive list.

    for rows, imagine you have a grapefruit between your scaps and you want to squeeze it and pour the juice all over your back.
    no, it doesn't work with an orange or a lemon, it has to be a grapefruit, mkay?

    for chest flies, they say you must hug a tree, but I find it dumb. imagine you must squeeze the head of your enemy between your biceps, blood popping out of his ears, nose and mouth and all that stuff.

    for glutes, imagine you are in prison and you must protect your anal virginity.

    for lying leg curls, don't imagine you are in prison because you will give up on this exercise and "your hammies will lag, bro"

    for calf raises, imagine you don't have a ticket, you are over the fence, and you want to see what's going on on that scene.

    for squats, deadlifts and bench press, don't imagine your puffy, red, convulsed and distorted face on that last rep because you will give up on them. imagine something nice, like you are in a forest and you are hugging a tree with boobs, two in the front and two in the back. natural ones! there is also a hollow in that tree, a cute little one... I'm just saying.

    for 1 arm pullups and 1 finger pushups, I imagine I can already do them so I just don't do them.

    why would someone keep a pen in his armpit when there's a nice decent looking tree in every forest?
    this planet is sick!
    this generation should... I don't even wanna... forget about it...

    I wasn't joking with the first two
    There is good information on this forum from older users like ZoranM, Garage Rat, Smokinal, Defiant1, Dominik in some older threads, but you need time to find it

    Stuff like

    "^^^Good stuff here. I'll add, just for an easy example, that back training is one of the easiest to explain and one of the most important to learn as far as mind muscle connection (MMC). When doing pulls for my back, I typically use a "thumbs out" grip, thinking of my hands as just hooks, linking my arms to the bar. Then when starting the rep, I imagine pulling with my elbows, rather than with my hands; I vision my back contracting and growing.
    I could sit down on the lat pull down machine and just pull with my arms but that usually results in using too much bicep and not the back which you are training. By using mmc, hooking the bar with my hands, pulling with my elbows and picturing my back flexing and growing, I make sure it's my back/lats doing the work.
    MMC basically is the idea that you are completely focused on the muscle group you are working and contracting that muscle completely when doing your reps.
    You can apply some of this to every muscle group you have."

    the link u shared is SO GOOD! I'm eternally grateful for that. Do you happen to keep a list of other similar links which talk about MMC too?

    I'm also particularly interested in the best exercises for aesthetics for each body part - E.g. for biceps, focus on long head to get the peak higher, hence do close grip preacher curls.

    Thank you so much!
