If that's only a terminology thing and indeed, the scooter push is an equivalent of what you describe than in inline we were doing the same drills (parallel push, side push in circles) and they are by all means productive and helpful. But the 'scooter push' that was being referred to earlier here (YT by the Skatefresh instructor Asha) leaves me still sceptical (yet again, I am no expert and she's a 15+ yrs experience in skate coaching, so...).
