BLOC Coaches Matt Reynolds and Niki Sims discuss how they've been cueing their clients over the last couple years, in particular how their cues tend to change during the course of a set.

Many lifters performing a heavy set of five will struggle with technique on the fourth and fifth reps, due to weakness in certain parts of the movement, physical and mental fatigue, or both. The fourth and fifth reps are often the most mentally taxing, meaning lifters have very limited ability to process cues at the very moment they need cues the most!

Matt and Niki discuss the cues they have found helpful for each of the big lifts, and how those cues evolve as a lifter progresses through a heavy set.
