Ok....I'll bite, I go directly back into my comfy boxman position right after I
pull. I try to keep as stable as possible, as not to create an "odd" opening
sequence. It is strange to figure how much of a difference it would make for a
dipped shoulder to create an uncomfortable opening. Needless to say what a head
down, (head lower than the body) opening does. Just forget to slow down on a
track sometime when you pull, that will open your eyes.
