And stack, and stack. After that, I slide up, down, up, and bring my hands together. So, in a rhythm or routine, what I'm gonna do is, if I wanna bring my hands together, like, boom, and I show you the movements. And I bring my hands up, and I go into this movement, I lock it down, kinda like transformer. Shoulders, there you go, you're transforming. Bring it up, stack that, stack that, boom boom ba. Make it clean, make it nice. Use all 10 fingers and make it happen.
