I saw this post the other day and thought it was a great way to visualize the coaching cue I give all the time “Hips back, chest up”.  Our squat and deadlift both start with the hips back movement … so next time you squat imagine your arms are loaded and you have to close your car door.  What do you do? Use you hips and send them straight back!
