Posted:Yeah, it's a nice move. If you work on the timing, you can bring both chains across together. Just remember to keep the opposite-side hand forward and above the same-side hand. The hand motion as you cross over is somewhat similar to sliding your hands along the top of a car's steering wheel.

Posted:I wouldn't say that is a variation of a horizontal mexican wave but probably along the same lines. The equivalent horizontal move would be a a horizontal butterfly over your head and then bring it down so it changes directions near your chest and repeat.Other equivalents that people may not knowcorkscrew= horizontal figure 8windmill= figure 8 above your headso anyways, its all about the figure 8's and where you put it
