Mark Bell discussing proper elbow and wrist position during the bench press. He also talks about what some refer to as”over cooking” the cue such as, elbows in and how it can lead to poor wrist position. Over cooking a cue is when you take a cue too an extreme, which in turn puts you a bad position. Examples are elbows in such as Mark talks about, another one is “knees out.” Some people will focus so much on knees out that they actually role to the outsides of their feet. Which during a squat or anything else you can see how that can be a problem. A cue is meant to get you in a better anatomical position. Once the better position is reached you need to have the body awareness to know that, along with knowing when you are taking the cue to far and outside of its original intent.
