"Unconscious Reactions to Out-of-Balance Situations
When the body is out of balance, the brain immediately makes a subconscious adjustment.  To demonstrate how the upper body reacts when the player performs a skill with the lower body out of balance, think again about riding a bike.  When the rider puts their arm to the side, the body immediately and unconsciously adjusts to make sure the rider does not fall.  In sports, the same thing happens with the upper on a daily basis."
