Left arm & leg straight Right arm & leg in "L" @ contact will help me. Thanks

Your lower body mechanics were absolutely perfect at collision (i.e., front leg rigid, back leg in an "L" position). Just as importantly, your upper body mechanics were equally as good (i.e., front arm straight, back arm in an "L" position).

Thanks for your friendly response, but I would like to add something: I deserve no credit for noticing the arm and leg positions. Jack deserves the acclaim for the visual illustration in "Get Your Arms Extended."
