I agree. I'm a fan of Lee Parks' suggestion to "pre-load" the opposite bars while setting up for a turn. In that case, turn is initiated by relaxing rather than by exerting force.
I was going to try and find a video to explain what I'm talking about, but I got stuck when I found this instead:
I find this video to be highly instructional, even with the audio turned off.
