HI Abe
we are having difficulty viewing any link due to Geographic Restriction
This content is not available in our locations, Could you perhaps describe the situation as we work to find a suitable video link. Not sure what they are referring too with the terms both grounded? Perhaps players feet on the ground at a shoulder challenge Only one must be? Sorry
