Great question. Potentially, although you do need some weight on that footlock leg for support or it’s all upper body support! The tension between the fully locked fabric and the caught fabric is at play here. To find the box shape, you want to feel the press of the foot into the footlock, both at the arch and around the ankle, while the legs are both facing front or parallel. Think about turning your knee caps in the same direction as your front. And then to find the slide, turn the footlock leg out, or the knee cap turning to the side. It’s an active internal rotation of the legs for the box shape and an external rotation of the front leg for the split.
