the timing on the double haul

this has probably been covered before in the forum, but I havent found the thread. Please patience or Ill settle for a link.
My instints tell me the first haul should begin when Im picking up the line (it also helps me get it off the water), and the second haul when Im starting the foward cast.
But Ive read this is better: First haul as the rod reaches vertical position right before you flip back and up, and the second haul after the foward cast has begun. This feels a lot more awkward; becaus Im loosing the chance to use the tension of the fly line fully extended behind me to make the tug in the second haul.
Any tips for the timing??

by the way, something I read that works for me real well is making the hauls with a fast movement
cheers and thanks
