Video Transcription

What I observed there is that when I went up, I didn't use my fourth finger, I used my third. Now, why would that be? Well, when you look at your fingers, my third finger, when I'm like this, goes further than my fourth. I don't have as far to go. If I'm going to stay there in that position, then my elbow goes under. So elbow stays here. I should not come back. Here. Elbow comes under.
