Specific Problem Advice:

My experiences:

Actually, I had a good deal of trouble learning this fucker. It's totally easy now but I wasted a lot of time on it in the beginning before I got some solid advice. Logan helped me a lot on this move. He told me all about the reaching forward stuff and keeping your back straight etc. I love the guy, thanks a lot Logan! Anyway, after I started utilizing his advice I finally landed it. It took me awhile to get the move consistent but I did. My final advice is this: Don't get frustrated with it and don't waste your time. It's better to set good habits early with more concentrated attempts than to set bad habits with work of lesser quality. Don't get in the habit of putting your hands down and keep the things in mind I mentioned earlier.
