Overhead Cast: Don't Curl The Rod Around Your Body (15 of 19)

't curl the rod around your body

Video Transcript:

When we make that straight path back and that straight path forward, we have to stay in that same straight plane. What we don't want to do is get a curl around our body behind us or around our body out in front of us. We want to stay, almost as if there's a wall out there to the side, in that nice straight line, back and forward.
