During the gymnastics round off, should a person "flick the wrist" like they are kind of doing a basketball shot? This is also done with the "shoulder shrug pop" to get a lift from the ground. One of my coaches told me to flick wrist, just curious if this is standard practice? Everyone has different teaching styles.

I feel like if a coach mentioned it, it's probably helpful. Coaches (most of the time) are right (unless they push you too far.)
