Putting the free leg out and up allows you to setup to increase your centrifugal force when you pull in. Putting it out stores your linear speed, pulling it in after you established the spot for the spin and entered the spin will increase your speed inside the spin. Lifting up the leg and mostly the knee gets your knee in the proper position for an IB upright spin.

So show me what you are doing now my young grasshopper.
