Thx, Harlan, I had already read before, but that means more time to keep the weight on your heels?, ie, keeping the foot flat on ground contact, to bring the bar to pocket (power position) and then just start the triple extension?

Something to understand is that the starting position the bar is on the ball of the foot, and when you raise the bar, pass the weight toward the heels, this would be what you say sweep or "S"?

pd. sorry for the English, not my native language.
