It's not a fast, easy, or pretty process, but once you start feeling the movement of the barrel behind you . . . you will immediately know what all of this "hands" talk is about.
Once you get that "feel", you will then be able to start on the real hard part . . . getting the lower half to sync up to that upper half's movement (ie. running start), and begin to adjust to the timing differences that you are afforded with it.
