Progressions & Variations

Tips

Movement should happen at your hip. Avoid moving at the upper body to make up for lack of hip movement.

Do not let your leg drift in front of or behind you. Instead, keep it in line with your body.

Keep your foot pointed straight ahead rather than allowing it to rotate up.
