Stage one- checking out how you move your arms. This move is so simple it is quite often overlooked.
I suggest testing out all the ways- and getting to know them well. Rotate through when you practice- rather than choosing just one. That is, AFTER you spend some time getting to know them each.
Notice when you reach, when you lift, when you extend (and where).
