Getting a bit confused here. If I stand with arms to sides & direct palms forward and then raise them to the T-position Ido has in the exercise described (The Whippet). My thumbs are pointing upwards. In the video too, Ido has his thumbs pointing up?
Are we not just talking "degrees of rotation"? External rotation, sounds to me like it simply describes the direction to turn? If I rotate my arms in the direction Greg described and then hold my arms out to my side, my thumbs are pointing up?
If I turn it another quarter in the same direction, my thumbs will now be facing back?
Done in a standing position....
