Thank you all for your extremely helpful suggestions! Time for the evil crop exercise, and boobs to Jesus will definitely stick in my head! Lol!

Something my coach always told me, very similar to boobs to Jesus is "heels down tits up" not the most appropriate way to say it but I never forgot!

Everyone has mentioned wonderful tips, just wanted to say nice lines from your elbow to the horses mouth. Too often do I see a broken line but your hands are following the head beautifully. Keep up the good work!
