Extrinsic Cues

Extrinsic Cues.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting Crossfit Moreland to play with Dylan Sorensen. Dylan is a superstar of focus and commitment. I have attached two videos below showing how a simple extrinsic cue can change the output of the task. If you watch the first video of Dylan and focus on his right-hand side you will see how he collapses into his hip and knee lacking the drive of the kettle bell achieved on the left.  In the second video after a change in the cue, you see a more stable lift. It is important to remember the body self-organises around the task so if you’re going to cue make sure they don’t accidentally inhibit the goal. So keep those cues extrinsic.
