Transcript

Jeff Cowans: Hey, what's up? This time around we're going to teach you guys how to do the wave. Yeah. There's a lot of different ways you can do the wave. You can do it with your body. You can do it with your arms. You can do it with your back, even. But we're going to do the wave straight across. Yeah.

So you're going to stick out your arms, and before we start doing the wave, we're going to break it down nice and slow with our right side. We're going to chop it up like this. So you're going to go one, two, three. I use my body as four, other shoulder, five, six, seven, eight. Yeah. Then coming back from that side I go one, two, three. On three I push my shoulder up to my ear, three, chest, four, other side, five, six, seven, eight. Now with that wave and chopping it up, I think the hardest part of it is going to be the elbows. Once you get the elbows to do this or do this, you're good. Everything else, it's pretty easy.

So let's try it again from the right side. You guys ready? So we're going to go one, two, three, chest, five, six, seven, eight. Again, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. From that, you can count it across your body nice and slow and make from one to eight. Yeah.

Keep the same way you just did it, but this time you're going to add this. Yeah. So you don't just want to go voom to your wave. You want to use every single joint, starting from your hand, and let the wave roll through your body. So you're going to go this. Yeah. You want to pull it in and not just go here for your wave, and then pull it in from your fingers. You guys ready? Autumn, you ready?

Autumn: Yeah.

Jeff:You really ready?

Speaker A: Yeah.

Jeff: Let's do it. Hands out. So we're going to chop it up one more time for you from our right to the left and then back, and then we'll let it run through nice and smooth and remembering to bend all the joints in the hand. So five, six, seven, eight. You're going one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Now let's roll through nice and slow. Six, seven, eight. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Other way. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. There you go, that's the wave. After doing it and practicing it so many times, your arms get a little tired. It's okay. No pain, no gain.
