Interesting!
It's like being back to a novice skydiver learning to maneuver.

You're no longer just "taping" legs together above the knees and at the ankles, but using a single strap above the knees, that leaves a space between the legs.

You tend to be dearched at the hips. So apparently that is a sort of neutral position and even belly to earth without muscle tone, wind pressure doesn't move the legs back. So it is a very stable point as far as inherent muscle lengths or whatever goes. I guess you can't work any lower back muscles that might help arching at the hips, although I'm not sure of what all muscles contribute.
