I don't know what you mean by it being bro science. I wasn't trying to be scientific at all... It's just a way of explaining the motion. I don't think explaining the exact biomechanics of it would be a helpful mental tool for most people.
Basically well said here. Wil does talk more about the elbow, but not much of
that talk in mtm or modern. Elbow is more a part of it when you don't use the
straight arm technique, but we still don't focus on much on the elbow movement.
