I also had the problem of "Over Muscling" the pop. It doesn't need to be a big huge pop. As that can actually throw off your trajectory.
Again start with a small pop and pull your knees to your chest with your core muscles. This pulling will also help you to stay compact, then progress to the grabs.

recca7: you should be able to put all that info to use on small side hits with no issues. Nev starts you out on small side hits then progresses to bigger jumps. I did my 1st 180 the other day of a 1 foot side hit ahahhaa but I did it
