Remain present - don't talk and drop a "thread" in your practice by "dinking around" (Diana euphemism)
Don't be "lazy" - engage your legs, bandhas, root hands and feets; energetically move to your "edge."

Pull throughs: 3 count before pulling through and sitting down; firmly plant hands, engage bandhas, round your belly.
