    2. Flatten and extend the four fingers (not including the thumb) at least twice, keeping them together.
    3. Posture the dominant hand in a bent version of the “open B” shape, with the four fingers bent at the proximal joint but otherwise extended and together, thumb extended to make a flat hand with a gap between the thumb and the edge of the hand about half an arm's length in front of the shoulder, dominant palm facing back.
