Hey thanks for the advice, Ill watch the videos when I get home from work (blocked)
I think maybe grabbing bottom of jacket might be the best option. I did an exercise with roxy camp last year that made us think more about shoulders or closing and opening 'front pocket back pocket' (front arm in conjunction with turns) which I sometimes use if I find I have lost rhythm
I am by no means a beginner, just have gotten into some pretty bad habits that need fine tuning.

My main concern is my flying arms on jumps. Imagine sucking up a deep breath. I think that what I do with my upper body. It means that my arms are not staying to my sides or they are but I look ridiculous.
It happens more when I am trying to use my lower body to get pop oddly enough, not so much when I don't try (but am in air with straighter legs instead)
Also happens with Indy grabs, front arm wanders.
Im a bit stuck.
