I find that moving the left knee forward (towards ball) during the BS promotes what many would call a reverse pivot IF pressure is maintained or increased of the left leg during the BS and especially if the left foot remains planted. However, if the weight is maintained on the left leg and/or increased during the transition and DS, is that then a non-issue and only a reverse pivot if the weight ends up on the right during the DS?

    Left knee bending is unweighting it. Pressure absolutely will not increase as left as leg flexes forward. To maintain balance right hip works up and back and shifts pressure right.

    Reverse pivot is far more likely if left knee kicks inward going back
