As we gear up for back squat and shoulder press, what are your mental cues for each lift? How do you set up, how do you drive through the sticking point? Once you get cues that work for you, it becomes a routine each time you unrack the bar. You should know where your body is and where it needs to be/go throughout the entire lift, and know it so well that it's ingrained in muscle memory. Then of course we deal with the form breakdown that may come at maximal effort, but that decreases over time as you develop supportive muscle and learn to keep tension during the lift. Some of you are learning this as you "fail in the groove" where your form is right but you just didn't have the strength to make it through. This reduces chances of injury as well.
