Although verbal cues play a major role in coaching and athlete development, the ability to demonstrate and physically correct movement is an invaluable tool as a coach. Whether the athlete needs to see a correct bar path or lifting progression or merely needs to have someone move them into the desired position the physical side of coaching plays an integral role. In some instances with beginner lifters, a coach may demonstrate a position then ask the athlete to mimic and make adjustments accordingly. Some cues may be something that can be felt and others are mere explanations of how to organize the body correctly in the given position. Visual and tactile cues are irreplaceable and should be used when verbal commands are not working or when teaching a brand new lifter.
