Which is why it's wise not to even think about heels, just think "stretch that leg down"

I don't even think about stretching the leg - I think of opening and dropping my knee and thigh. It loosens your whole leg, immediately shifts weight down the back of your leg, through your seat, and you are not gripping so much that you block the shoulders.
