The correct right elbow move is essentially external rotation of the rear shoulder. If you try to lead with the right elbow without ER all you will do is add way too much axis tilt too early. The feeling should be like holding a tray of drinks with your right hand at the top and then coming down holding that tray intact through the strike without spilling the drinks.
this is exactly what i stumbled on....
couldn't get the right elbow to chase the belly button etc, or lead.
For me, and anyone else prone to goat humping, i reckon a tendency to go into internal right shoulder way too early.... means doing this has to feel like you try to increase the right wrist bend, increase that right shoulder external rotation at transition ( even if in reality we only 'hold' it there a bit...).
It'll feel mighty weird - but through impact will feel so much better - and may also feel way too open... an extra feel of also trying to/feeling like you're cranking the left wrist at the same time... as if bending the palm towards the arm (like releasing the the twist grip on a motorbike etc, decreasing the revs).
