    Agreed. When I learned the reverse back wrap I had to push the handle WAY down (like near my knees) to be able to hold it. Then, while backwards, I learned to stand up straighter and slide the handle just below my butt. It helped me learn which muscles were needed to hold it. It worked better for me to learn it rather than just forcing it back and being pulled front over and over.

    RFF reverse back wrap I will slide my right hand over so my fingers are actually on the rope where the rope meets the handle. My right arm is almost straight and low. The thumb of my right hand is heading to my butt hole.

    Different descriptions resonate differently to different people! FWIW, I understood @Horton right away!

    I have never been able to hold a reverse back wrap. However, I do a WBB to a momentary reverse wrap with the handle straight out to the side. I hold it just long enough to get an edge for the RWBB. Dynamic.

    Bahahaha! @Horton relates everything to his butt hole. If not his thumb then his head!
    Stir vigorously then leave!
