Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 It is important to understand that an injury to the spine is different from an injury to the knee or hip. A spine injury sets off a cascade of events, and the disc bulge is just one of them. #2 It is important to remember that an MRI scan is a picture of your anatomy in only one particular position. It would be naive to believe that a mechanic could look at a picture of a race car and know exactly why it's making a weird noise when shifting from third to fourth gear above 60 mph. #3 The spine is not just a stack of bones, but a slightly curved tower of small bones called vertebrae, separated by discs. Each vertebra is connected to the others through small joints in the back called facets, which give the spine tremendous movement options. #4 The spine is a complex structure, and injuries can occur for many different reasons. Understanding how they occur is important to prevent them in the future.

There is no such thing as a “golden cue” that works for everyone 100% of the time. Therefore, the more cues a coach has in their toolbox, the more likely they will be able to effectively communicate with their athletes. Coaches use cues—short, easy-to-remember phrases—to help athletes perform movements correctly as well as to convey useful sports psychology perspectives. Athletes commonly hear movement cues like “Crush the Can” and “Grip the Ground” along with motivational cues like “Consistency is King.” A passionate coach, lifelong athlete, and advanced degree holder in kinesiology, Karl Eagleman, creator of the popular Whiteboard Daily Instagram, has put together a valuable resource for coaches, athletes, and anyone who wants to improve their own movement. The Whiteboard Daily Book of Cues contains a comprehensive collection of illustrations drawn on a whiteboard—a medium that virtually all coaches are familiar with. It boasts the largest list of cues ever compiled, covering Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, gymnastics, kettlebell exercises, and monostructural movements (running, rowing, jumping rope, etc.). Each illustration is hand drawn in a simple, stylized way to make the cues easy to retain and to utilize during training. No two athletes are the same; we all learn in our own unique ways. By providing hundreds of cues, this book will help coaches and athletes learn a new way to understand movement for themselves and/or to communicate safe, effective movement to others.
