So you have three hops in-between each one. The first one is going to be just two hops, so you're going to say one and two. Now the rest of them are three hops, and a three, and four, and a five, and six, and a seven, and eight. On your even numbers, the two, four, six, and eight, the leg flick happens here, ha.
