Knuckles Down – The Lifting Fix feat. Matt Bruce

Here is a great cue and drill to help you out! The “knuckles down” cue leads the lifter to do a wrist curl with the bar. This motion points the elbows towards the end of the bar and helps to keep it close. It also causes slights tension in the tricep, which will prevent early arm bend! One drill, two fixes!
