Hi Janice! Looking great so far.
1) After marchenko, take a breath and then do a full and complete sit up to grab the pole with your right then left hand right away. Think about driving that wrapped leg down and away from your center.
2) Yes, you will still grab the pole after the tootsie roll drop. I think you can “tempo” a bit more before the drop, which should help that bounce back up. Also- think about driving your wrapped leg down and away from your center, just like after marchenko. Let us know how that goes!
