2) suggest that arm tone/tension should be comparable to that needed to push a shopping cart;
Love the shopping cart. Not only the tone/tension, but also the way you use your body to push it. Also you can maneuver it around, spin it etc. And for doing that you need to pay attention to its weight distribution and momentum, very much in the same way you have to pay attention to the followers body and how her body is moving.

it also illuminates the principles of hand placement in relation to center line.

when i ruptured an achilles tendon ten years ago, part of my rehabilitation routine included going to the supermarket and pushing a cart around the store every day; besides working the lats, it also helped me camouflage work on heel vs. toes leads - and i could carry my cane in the cart.
