Get long

Quick tip for today - a coaching cue I picked up from my boss.

When having someone push the Prowler, a good cue is "get long." Some pushers have a tendency to try to scrunch up and push. They'll lean between the high handles, arms bent, shoulders shrugged, spine bent, and hips pulled up close. You want the opposite - arms extended and shoulders back and down, spine straight, and hips angled to the ground to get some drive into the legs.

Everyone I saw get his with this cue suddenly improved their form. I think it's a keeper. Got a scruncher? Tell him or her to get long!
