Low V: Arms are in a "V" formation and your fists are holding 2 buckets of water.
"T" : With the "T" motion, your arms are in a "T" formation with your fists holding 2 buckets of water. Do not raise your shoulders, just relax them to your normal walking position.
"Half T" : Same as the "T" motion, just bend your arms in.
